Genetics and Genomics Education

In collaboration with the seven RGNs and NGEFC, NCC works to develop and disseminate educational resources to primary care providers, public health, and families. Projects include developing new ACT sheets and Algorithms and developing a training program that can educate healthcare interpreters on genetics. Additionally, NCC will strive to create an interactive online environment that will allow educational resources developed at the regional level to be shared nationally.
