Welcome to the National Genetics Education and Family Support Center
The National Genetics Education and Family Support Center (Family Center) works to increase access to genetic services by promoting and strengthening family engagement in the genetic healthcare delivery system.
Learning about and participating in the genetics delivery system can be overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be. Our information and resources are broken down to meet you where you are. Whether you’re interested in learning more about hereditary patterns, your genetic condition, or leadership opportunities, we have it here for you.
The Family Center is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the Cooperative Agreement #UH8MC30771.
Through a partnership between Expecting Health, SPAN Parent Advocacy Network, and Parent to Parent USA, the Family Center supports the federally funded National Coordinating Center and the seven Regional Genetics Networks (RGNs) to improve access to quality genetic services and to reach medically underserved populations. Each RGN is composed of up to eight states and territories and is a central component of the U.S. genetic services system of healthcare providers, public health professionals, and family representatives.
