Date:11/5/2010

BETHESDA, MD October 20, 2010 Thousands of the world's top scientists and clinicians in the human genetics field will convene to present their latest research findings at the American Society of Human Genetics 60th Annual Meeting, which will be held November 2-6, 2010, in Washington, D.C.

A number of scientific presentations at this year's meeting will provide information about important new research findings that advance and expand our current understanding of the issues and implications involved in direct-to-consumer and clinical genetic testing. ASHG will host a press briefing at the 2010 Annual Meeting to highlight three presentations of interest on this topic.

ASHG invites members of the media to attend this press briefing event titled, "Researchers Shed Light on Implications and Impact of Using Direct-to-Consumer and Clinical Genetic Testing in Disease Risk Assessment," which will be held on Friday, November 5, 2010, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. (EDT) in the ASHG Press Briefing Room, located on the first level of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (in Room #101). Members of the press who cannot attend this event in person can register to view the online webcast* of this session, which will be posted on the ASHG Web site about two to three hours after the event has ended (*see section in red below for more information about viewing the online webcast).

Session moderator and President-Elect of ASHG, Lynn Jorde, PhD, will open with a brief introduction to the topic area and an overview of ASHG's position statements on direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing use and oversight in the U.S., and on the recently proposed retail sale of genetic test kits to the public in drugstores across the nation. After his introduction, the other three speakers will present their latest research findings from the following abstracts on direct-to-consumer and clinical genetic testing:
