IGES decries anti-Asian harassment and discrimination

The International Genetic Epidemiology Society (IGES) is appalled by the widespread increase in harassment of Asians and people of Asian descent over the last year, including recent violent attacks on Asians and Asian-Americans in the United States. As a society committed to the health and wellbeing of all individuals, the free flow and exchange of scientific ideas, and a diverse and inclusive scientific community, IGES condemns racism, bigotry, suppression and discrimination in all forms wherever it occurs, and IGES decries scapegoating, which flows from and supports racism and discrimination.
