A new site, GINAhelp.org, aims to be an educational resource to help people understand what the US Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act does and does not cover. This is the brainchild of Johns Hopkins University's Genetics and Public Policy Center, the National Coalition for Health Professional Education in Genetics, and the Genetic Alliance, points out ScienceRoll's Bertalan Meskó. There, Meskó says "you can find out more about genetic information, GINA and health insurance; also GINA and employment."
"Almost every day, our center is asked for more detailed information about what GINA means," says Joan Scott, director of the Genetics and Public Policy Center, in a statement. "These targeted materials will go a long way towards answering the questions that still exist, paving the way for successful, long-term implementation of this important law."
