We can be proud of the Academy's global educational philanthropic progress as another successful webinar concluded Tuesday on the topic of DNA Advances involved 142 scientists from 11 countries (Belize, Canada, DRC, Kenya, Lebanon, Lebanon, Puerto Rico, Somalia, South Africa, Tanzania, USA and Zimbabwe) who attended to learn from our AAFS DNA experts. 

We wanted to thank AAFS honored speakers and attendee members that donated their time over the past 2 ½ years for the support of the Global Collaboration of Forensic Scientists with the United Nations, DOJ ICITAP and other university/academic programs around the world.  We are grateful for the opportunity to give back in pure philanthropy. 

Thank you for your support of the Global Collaboration of Forensic Scientists whose sessions are free and available to everyone at no expense.  The DOJ has donated their platform for this collaboration as well as the post-production staff that has created six videos for our AAFS website.  Therefore, there is little expense if any to AAFS or its members.
