Subject: JNS Special Genomics Issue Webinars Registration FYI

The registration link for all JNS Special Genomics Issue Webinar is now open.
Space is limited to 100 participants.  However, the sessions will be taped and available for future access at http://www.genome.gov/27552312 and this is where you can now view the first webinar Relevance of Genomics to Healthcare and Nursing Practice  Dr. Kathleen Calzone and Dr. Jean Jenkins from NIH provide an overview of the Journal of Nursing Scholarship Genomic Special Issue. Included are contributions by journal editor, Dr. Susan Gennaro, as well as a brief overview of the relevance of genomics for nursing practice, education and research.

If you wish to attend, plan to enter the webinar room early (10" ahead) to assure you can download the gotomeeting software in time.  You will need access to a computer with a microphone and speakers.  A headset is recommended.  You will be on mute during the presentation but have the opportunity to type in questions for discussion at the end of the session.
