2024 Genetics in Health Care Series

2024 Genetics in Health Care Series
Virtual / Teams

Data suggests that many medical professionals have not been formally trained to discuss genetics and genetic screening/testing with their patients and may not be aware of the value of screening for CDC Tier 1 conditions. This series will allow providers to familiarize themselves with language and knowledge of screening recommendations, and clinical indications for genetic counseling, testing, and resources. Providers will engage in discussions on how to incorporate genomic medicine into daily practice and develop personalized care plans.

Each session offers 1.00 of CME/CE Credit or a maximum of 4.0 CME/CE Credits for completion of all four sessions.
