Each year, ECIB selects a different region of the country to host the forum. In May 2005, the University of Washington was selected to host the first forum, representing the Northwest region of the United States. In 2006, ECIB selected the Southeast region of the country to host the forum (Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) regions IV and VI). The University of North Carolina was selected.
For the 2007 forum, ECIB selected the Midwest region of the country as host (DHHS regions V and VII [hhs.gov]). The University of Michigan was selected to host the 3rd annual Community Genetics Forum. Five concurrent Forums were held across the Midwest region, in Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois. The five Forums were held on the same day and were connected to each other via video conferencing. For more information, please visit www.genocommunity.org
