The Genetics Society of America is committed to increasing support for parents and caregivers who attend our conferences. As the Conference Childcare Committee, we’re asking for input from parents and caregivers in the community so that we can best meet your needs.

This short survey should take less than ten minutes of your time, and your feedback will help make GSA Conferences more parent-friendly! The survey will remain open until August 2.

The survey is now closed.


The Conference Childcare Committee is charged with assessing the current offerings for family support and childcare available at GSA Conferences and making recommendations for ways that GSA Conferences can better serve primary caregivers and make our meetings more equitable.
