Using Genomics to Prevent Cancer

April 11, 2014

Genetic Alliance, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control’s Office of Public Health Genomics, has released a set of videos to share information on the importance of Tier 1 genomic applications with all interested partners as well as state departments of public health. Early detection and intervention are key to reducing the negative effects of these conditions, and these videos are part of a larger effort to facilitate the development of programs that can save thousands of lives through screening and prevention of these three conditions.

Using Genomics to Prevent Cancer Now helps partners who are interested in addressing this important health challenge.  The video features Dr. Muin Khoury of CDC and Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the NIH; as well as other prominent public health and healthcare provider, payer, and patient leaders along with links to further information.
