Genetic Alliance Advocates Partnership Program
Genetic Alliance proudly partners with a number of the nation’s leading health professional societies and organizations to offer an Advocates Partnership Program integrated into annual meetings across the country. The program is specifically designed to foster collaborations between the advocacy community (including disease-specific and community organization leaders, individuals and families affected by genetic conditions, and students/youth) and health professionals. Up to 20 advocates attend each conference and participate in exclusive meetings with leaders in the fields of clinical genetics, scientific research, drug and test development, and government. The Advocates Partnership Program offers an unparalleled opportunity for participants to gain unique insight into a variety of professions while networking with advocates and professionals from around the world.
Genetic Alliance proudly partners with the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG), and the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) to provide the Advocates Partnership Program paired with their annual meetings.
Read a reflection on the Advocates Partnership Program at the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) Clinical Genetics Conference in March 2010 in Albuquerque, NM. The reflection was featured in the June 2010 issue of the NCC Collaborator, a publication of the National Coordinating Center for the Regional Genetic and Newborn Screening Service Collaboratives, a partnership with the GSB/MCHB/HRSA through a cooperative agreement with the ACMG.
