Statement on the Importance of Participation of Scientists in K-12 Science Education







ASHG’s primary educational objectives are to promote awareness of human genetics, encourage young people to enter genetics-related careers, and foster trust and support for genetics research. ASHG accomplishes those goals by educating students, health care professionals, health policy makers, the media, and the public about human genetics and its translation to health care practice.
