Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting (ACMG 2017)
Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, Arizona
March 21-25, 2017
Phoenix, Arizona – With ACMG just over a week away, the FDNA team is growing increasingly excited to trade in our winter coats and boots for sunshine and cacti. But the escape from the everlasting Boston winter aside, is the anticipation to sponsor and attend ACMG again this year. The ACMG annual meeting hosts hundreds of genetics professionals to explore and discuss how genomics technologies are being integrated into medical or clinical practice. This year’s meeting includes a wide array of impressive speakers, attendees, posters and exhibitors. From discussions of rare disease technology advancements, to fun games and everything in between, here are our top picks of what to do and see while at ACMG.
