The International Society of Nurses in Genetics, Inc. was incorporated in 1988 in the State of Maryland by a small group of genetic nurses. Today, ISONG is proud of their international membership of 350+ which continues to grow each and every year.
ISONG leadership is comprised of a Board of Directors, many Committees, and others who volunteer their time, talent and energy in order to achieve the goals of the ISONG membership.
ISONG hosts an annual 3-day World Congress every year for nurses in genomics worldwide, traditionally in the fall. During this exceptional program attendees will participate in presentations that support them in their quest to be leaders and innovators in the growing filed of genetic and genomic nursing science. The location rotates between a city within the United States one year and a non-US location the following year.
what we do
ISONG is an inclusive professional group serving the nursing profession and the public. Internationally, nurses are engaged in genetic and genomic healthcare at all levels of policy, education, research, and clinical practice. We welcome new perspectives and relish the opportunity to have new members join us in shaping the future.
