Genetic Alliance hosts and organizes a wide variety of events focused on cutting-edge topics in health and genetics, with the ultimate goal of improving health, and therefore improving lives.
Welcome to Genetic Alliance’s 30th year! The world has changed dramatically these past several years and yet, in the realm of health, individuals and families still face serious challenges. On March 9-10, 2017 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center we celebrated successes, examined failures, and most importantly, planned for the future. Always keeping individuals and families at the center, we enabled cross-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder teams to co-create a vision worth striving for as well as more concrete solutions. Our two days together were driven by the lived experience of attendees, macro trends in healthcare, and evidence-driven analysis of the needs that people face in pursuing healthy and happy lives. Thank you for bringing your talents to two-days of ideation and collaborative visioning to help transform health as we know it.
Genetic Alliance webinars offer a forum for learning and conversation on programs, tools, and policies. Participants engage with presentors and each other to solve problems realted to newborn screening, translational science, family health history, advocacy organization operations, and other hot topics.
Genetic Alliance partners with many stakeholders, hosting events that explore a wide variety of topics in the field of genetics and health. These initiatives lead to groundbreaking research and reform efforts. As a result of our events, the public learns more about advances in genetics and genomics, how it affects them as consumers or patients, and how to get involved.
