Genomics and Population Health Action Collaborative meeting

March 28

The FH Foundation is heading to Washington D.C. on March 28 to lead the familial hypercholesterolemia cascade screening working group for the Genomics and Population Health Action Collaborative (GPHAC). GPHAC is an ad hoc activity under the auspices of the Roundtable on Genomics and Precision Health at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. In late 2015, GPHAC recruited a diverse group of stakeholders with an interest in integrating genomics at the population health level. The goal of the group is to explore the opportunities for genetics and genomics research and applications to improve public health, reduce health disparities, and promote genomic literacy. Now in its fourth year the action collaborative includes three parallel working groups:

Cascade Screening — led by Katherine Wilemon, the FH Foundation and Heather Hampel, the Ohio State University;
Population Screening — led by Jim Evans, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Michael Murray, Geisinger Health System;
Implementation — led by Debra Duquette, of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and David Chambers, National Cancer Institute.
