Join us on September 21, 2022 in Chicago, IL as the nation’s leading experts in genetics gather for this one-day, interactive event. Now in its fifth year, this course will help attendees increase their confidence in deciding which genetic tests to offer and improve communication during complex genetic counseling. Led by Dr. Mary Norton, the course is intended for MFMs, fellows, genetic counselors, OBGYN generalists, and midwives. 

Pre-registration is now closed.  Onsite registration is available at the Royal Sonesta Chicago beginning at 8am on Wednesday, September 21st.
