Mission Statement


Developing and sustaining genetic and genomic initiatives in clinical and laboratory practice, education and advocacy.
These are the three guiding pillars of the Strategic Plan.


(1) Clinical and Laboratory Practice: Establish the paradigm of genomic medicine by issuing policy statements and evidence-based or expert clinical and laboratory practice guidelines and through descriptions of best practices for the delivery of genomic medicine;


(2) Education: Provide education and tools for medical geneticists, other health professionals and the public and grow the genetics workforce;


(3) Advocacy: Work with policymakers and payers to support the responsible application of genomics in medical practice.
