Subject: 2010 Summer Institute in Public Health Genomics - June 14-18

The UW Center for Genomics and Public Health is hosting its 2nd Summer Institute in Public Health Genomics this June. Because of your involvement with the Heartland Regional Genetics and Newborn Screening Collaborative, we thought this might be of interest to you.

Would you please share this with anyone you think would be interested? We have scholarship money available to cover most of the registration/tuition cost.

Thank you for your help,
