Time Out for Genetics Webinar Series
The Genetics in Primary Care Institute has created a webinar series for primary care clinicians, pediatricians, pediatric sub-specialists, family physicians, nurse practitioners, genetic counselors, geneticists, and other stakeholders.
These Time Out for Genetics webinars last a half hour, occur once a month, and are recorded so that you can also watch at your convenience. The webinars:
- provide stakeholders with information for better understanding of the relevance of genetic medicine to primary care
- increase awareness and education regarding the provision of genetic medicine in primary care
- improve health care providers’ understanding of their roles and the roles of others related to the provision of genetic medicine in primary care settings
