Genetic Alliance is excited to announce the seven winning proposals chosen to receive Impact Awards as part of the activities of the National Genetics Education and Consumer Network (NGECN). For a one-year period (May 2014-April 2015) awardees will focus on significantly expanding the reach of their existing outreach and education efforts and scaling their impact on access to genetic services and support for individuals and families. In conjunction with the Impact Awards, Genetic Alliance created and released the Guide to Successful Outreach and Education Programs to highlight evidence-based programs that have implemented unique strategies to reach and educate individuals, families, and communities.

This collaboration and award opportunity are supported by the Genetics Services Branch of the Maternal and Child Health Bureau within the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
