Have you ever had problems with understanding what GINA, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, is really about? Anyway, this is a U.S. federal legislation that protects Americans from discrimination on the basis of genetic information. According to Spittoon:
The Genetic Alliance, the Genetics and Public Policy Center at the Johns Hopkins University, and the National Coalition for Health Professional Education in Genetics have created an online resource to help people better understand the protections GINA provides. This information is available in English and Spanish at www.GINAhelp.org.
