  • Description:
    Using the CDC‘s ―winnable battles‖ concept as a model, the OPHG has classified public health genomics applications into Tiers I, II and III to help those working in states and localities to begin working on evidence-based interventions that can save lives now. The purpose of today‘s meeting is to learn from each other‘s efforts to date, foster collaborative partnerships, and develop specific recommendations that will optimize implementation of public health programs in hereditary breast / ovarian cancer syndrome, Lynch syndrome and familial hypercholesterolemia. Similar strategies are expected to be modifiable for use with other diseases that reach Tier I status in the years ahead.

    Funding for this project was made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through McKing Consulting Corporation, contract 200-2009-F-32675. The contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of CDC.
