This webinar will present findings and analysis from an ASHG Board commissioned report on the economic and functional impact of human genetics and genomics research. Advances in genetics and genomics research depend on robust research funding, public support, and policies that enable science to thrive. It is therefore important for the community to communicate the value of research to public health and society to policymakers.
