Sorry for the short post but I wanted to get this out to you. The Secretary's Advisory Committee on Genetics, Health and Society has released the agenda for its March 26th and 27th meeting. What is the SACGHS? Well, it is a group of doctors, scientists, lawyers, ethicists, etc that have been asked to serve the Secretary of Health and Human Services. They advise HHS on genomic matters. In other words they help shape policy. As a matter of fact they played a big role in the GAO investigation into DNA Direct, and other direct to consumer testing sites. I'll bring the transcripts as soon as the meeting is over. Have a good weekend.
