Updated: Jul 21, 2023

Bioinformatics expert Gayle Old-Smith, RHIA, PMP, presents "Why Am I Testing? Defining Objectives in DNA Testing", on Saturday, September 1, at 9 a.m. at the Southern California Genealogical Genealogical Society's (SCGS) upcoming conference, Genetic Genealogy 2023.

Do you have a clear objective in mind when you order a DNA test? Many people receive tests from one of the top companies as a gift or a friend convinces them to test. Gayle will explore the various DNA tests offered and help to define your objective for test-taking along

with exploring steps you can take toward reaching your goals. Gayle works in Translational Bioinformatics at the City of Hope Medical Center and is a member of SCGS's DNA Interest Group

and the International Society of Genetic Genealogists. She

has tested with five DNA companies and manages 19 tests for clients. Gayle is a Registered Health Information Administrator, a credentialed Project Management Professional, and earned a certificate in Genomics for Law from the Univ of Illinois.

Genetic Genealogy 2023 will be held from Friday, September 7, to Sunday, September 9, in Burbank at the SCGS Library and the Burbank Mason Lodge. Two registration packages are available: in-person and virtual. Both packages give you access to the live presentations, all of the recorded presentations, and other events throughout the conference week, such as social hours and the virtual round tables. Consult the Genetic Genealogy site for additional speakers and pricing.
