Improving Access to Genetic Services for Underserved Populations
The National Coordinating Center for the Regional Genetics Networks (NCC) works with the seven Regional Genetics Networks (RGNs) and the National Genetics Education and Family Support Center (Family Center) work together toward this mission.
NCC develops tools and resources to help improve access to genetic services for underserved populations.
Our efforts include the development of educational materials related to the genetic service delivery system and genetics policy; assessing the genetics workforce; raising awareness about the field of public health genetics; and supporting the seven Regional Genetics Networks.
