What does GINA Mean?

A Guide to the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act

This tool provides a functional outline of GINA’s protections and how the legislation impacts every individual in the nation. The resource includes a history of the legislation, hypothetical situations of genetic discrimination, and key examples and definitions. We encourage individuals and organizations to utilize the guide either as a resource for answering questions or as a flexible tool to adapt and customize within your community.

Meet Your Neighbors

The Association for Molecular Pathology is a not-for-profit scientific society dedicated to the advancement, practice, and science of clinical molecular laboratory medicine and translational research based on the applications of genomics and proteomics. While the focus is "all molecular, all the time," the reach is broad. Currently AMP's initiatives include patient access to appropriate testing, as well as the appropriate oversight, regulation, reimbursement and practice guidelines for molecular tests.

AMP's 14th Annual Meeting and Exhibits is coming up October 29 - November 2, 2008, at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, Grapevine, TX.

Ask the Presidential Candidates

Both presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama place healthcare reform at a high priority within their election platforms.  In an online debate on the Wall Street Journal website August 7-11, health policy advisors to the Senators discussed their candidate’s healthcare proposals and strategies for addressing some of the greatest healthcare dilemmas of our time. 

We’re giving you an opportunity to ask the candidates their thoughts about genetics and health.  Submit your questions online and Genetic Alliance will ask the candidates for you.  We will post the answers on our website.
