New England Regional Genetics Group

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the governing body of NERGG and is composed of an executive committee and representatives from each the six New England states. We gather genetics service providers (physicians and genetic counselors), public health officials, and consumers (patients and families) to hear their unique perspectives as we work together to educate providers and the public to improve access to genetic services throughout the region.

Board meetings are held quarterly by conference call and/or Zoom meeting. Members are welcome to attend as non-voting participants. For phone-in or Zoom information for the meetings, please contact Cindy Ingham at director@nergg.org
