What is a Genetics Pop-Up?

  • A Genetics Pop-up is a small (5-8 person) gathering, held in the local community, spearheaded by a genetic ambassador, to share genetic resources with families and those who work with families impacted by genetic conditions.
  • MSRGN sends a Gene-in-a-Box resource kit.
  • MSRGN provides a limited budget to cover a set number of attendee gift cards, and the remainder of the budget may be used for food/drink (no alcohol!) at the genetics pop-up!
