The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), founded in 1948, is the primary professional membership organization for human geneticists in North America. Over 4,500 members include researchers, academicians, clinicians, genetic counselors, nurses and others involved in human genetics. The principal objectives of ASHG are to bring together investigators in the many areas of endeavor that involve human genetics, and to encourage and integrate their efforts by providing a forum for sharing research findings. This is accomplished primarily through the Society's annual meeting and its official monthly publication, The American Journal of Human Genetics. ASHG cooperates closely with other organizations that serve the human genetics community. In keeping with its focus on education, ASHG strives to inform health professionals, legislators, health policy makers and the general public about all aspects of human genetics. The Society actively encourages the participation and contributions of young scientists to ensure ongoing growth and progress in the field.
