Call for Pre-ConGRESS WORKSHOP sessions 

2021 ISONG World Congress 
Promoting Diversity, Inclusion, and Health Equity in Genomic Nursing

The International Society for Nursing in Genetics (ISONG) Congress will be hosting Pre-Congress workshops to address critical education in genomics. The workshops will be held virtually the day prior to Congress on Thursday, November 4, 2021.

The planning committee aims to select a mixture of topics that will reflect research, education, and clinical practice. Individuals, teams, and panels that address a practical application of a topic with a Q&A session will be considered for acceptance. Members of the ISONG community have expressed interest in topics such as:

Foundational Genetics/Genomics for Nurses
Clinical Application of Genetics/Genomics
(Disease-focused [e.g. oncology or cardiovascular disease] or broad)
Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics
Best Practices in Genetics/Genomics Education for Nurses 
Genetics for Vulnerable Populations

The application deadline is Monday, April 12, 2021.

To apply to present a workshop, please be prepared with the relevant data below. Please do not begin the application until you have all the material required – you cannot save the form and come back to it later.
