3033.0 Access to Genomic Services across the Lifespan
Monday, October 29, 2012: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
This session illustrates the breadth of genomic services and its potential impact throughout the life course of an individual. Two speakers will explore novel ways of improving use of genetic services by highlighting efforts to refer women at high risk for breast cancer in California to genetic counseling and to create a community-based genetic services center for an Amish population in Indiana. Other speakers will focus on ensuring the highest positive public health impact from existing newborn screening programs through examination of the screening process itself and policies impacting access to treatment for those in need of intervention.
Session Objectives: Describe strategies for improving access to genetic screening and services and ensuring that those services have the highest impact on health outcomes.
