Communications Committee


To promote IGES events and activities to IGES members and to the wider scientific community.

Members of the Communications Committee manage the IGES website, Facebook, and Twitter pages. We use these media to advertise not only IGES news and events, but also happenings in genetic epidemiology that may be of interest to IGES members. We also maintain a section on the IGES webpage on relevant job position openings.
