Congress Attendees Say It Best

“ISONG is such a wonderful place to network with nurse experts in genomics!  I have made contacts that have opened my mind to different ways of thinking - and opened doors to wonderful opportunities. This is THE conference to attend if you want to know what is happening in nursing genomic practice and research!”

Kathi Huddleston , PhD, RN, CCRC
Inova Translational Medicine Institute

“ISONG Congress provides the opportunity to network and meet with both national and international colleagues.  It almost seems like a "family reunion" as we have this once a year opportunity to get to see and talk to each other and catch up on professional and personal life.”

Cedars Sinai Medical Center

“I have been a member of ISONG for many years and enjoy the networking that occurs at the yearly ISONG Congress, particularly since we can see what our colleagues are doing nationally and internationally.”
