State Genomics Programs

This website is archived for historical purposes and is no longer being maintained or updated.

From 2003 to 2008, CDC's Office of Public Health Genomics awarded cooperative agreements to four state health departments (Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, and Utah) to integrate genomics knowledge (e.g., genetic risk factors) and tools (e.g., family history assessments) into state chronic disease prevention programs and core public health functions. These genomics programs have focused on building infrastructure and partnerships, training the public health workforce, educating the general public, using surveillance surveys to assess genomics integration, and promoting genomics screening tools.

Other state health departments are starting public health genomics activities, including the development of educational materials and public awareness campaigns. Learn more about other state activities.
