2020 ISONG World Congress 
Genomic Nursing: Fulfilling Nightingale’s Legacy of Care 

The International Society for Nursing in Genetics (ISONG) Congress will be hosting Pre-Congress workshops geared towards addressing critical education in genomics. The workshops will be held the day prior to Congress on Thursday, November 12, 2020, at the Washington Duke Inn, Durham, North Carolina, USA.

The planning committee aims to select a mixture of topics that will reflect research, education, and clinical practice.

Members of the ISONG community have expressed interest in topics such as:

Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics

Clinical Advances in Nursing Genomics

Integration of Omics Technologies for Research

Data Analysis for Genomics Research

NPCC Credentialing
