A Map of Public Health Genomics Initiatives

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has put together a state-level map of public health genomics efforts. "The map is meant to provide a 'one-stop shop' for finding information about programs and potential partners that may be relevant to implementation," writes Karen Greendale, from McKing Consulting and a contractor for the public health genomics office at CDC, in a blog post.

For example, clicking on Washington State on the map brings up a page with links to information about Washington's genetics and genomics programs, including its newborn screening initiative and other genetic services the state offers. Similar resources come up when Ohio is clicked on, including a link to information regarding state legislation related to genomics. The pages also include links to information about each state's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan and related programs, as well as information on how to find a genetic counselor.
