NHGRI to host annual Genomic Medicine meeting August 31

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) is hosting their annual Genomic Medicine meeting that will run August 31 – September 1, 2022.

The 14th annual event will discuss progress and identify generalizable solutions to genomic medicine implementation challenges experienced over the past 7 years.

Susanne Haga, PhD, associate professor of medicine and co-director educational programming at the Duke Precision Medicine Program will be moderating the session on, “Enabling Providers to Implement Genomic Knowledge.”

“Genomic medicine continues to evolve and trailblaze in the world of medicine,” said Dr. Haga. “This session will provide important takeaways for providers to consider when implementing genomics into their care and practice.”

The virtual meeting is open to all researchers, clinicians, educators, trainees, and staff, interested in genomic medicine. Registration is required.

Meeting objectives include:

  • Explore real-world examples of how genomic learning healthcare systems (gLHS) apply cycles of genomic medicine implementation, evaluation, adjustment and updated implementation practices across delivery systems.
  • Examine barriers and identify potential solutions, with a focus on lessons learned from effective gLHS and their potential transportability to other settings.
  • Determine ways to develop and share solutions and form collaborations to facilitate research on implementing gLHS.
