Dedicated to fostering the scientific and professional growth of nurses in human genetics and genomics worldwide.
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.
