When we lost Fr. Bob Baumiller in July 2006, we lost a dear friend and colleague. Shortly afterwards, the Baumiller Family and the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine established the Father Robert C. Baumiller Fund for Genetics and Society, which is dedicated to supporting the kinds of programs and projects to which Fr. Baumiller devoted his professional life – bioethics, genetics education and increasing access to genetic services.
Activities Sponsored by the ACMG Foundation's
Father Robert C. Baumiller Fund for Genetics and Society
It has become an ACMG Foundation tradition to use the monies available in this Fund to sponsor educational programs during the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meetings that challenge attendees' thinking about contemporary issues at the crossroads of science and society. Father Baumiller was deeply interested in, and concerned about, these issues; much of his life's work involved fostering public and professional dialogue that strove for solutions through which the best interests of all stakeholder communities could be served.
