Since 1997, CDC’s Office of Public Health Genomics has served CDC programs, other federal agencies, state health departments, and other external partners by identifying, evaluating, and implementing evidence-based genomics practices to prevent and control the country’s leading chronic, infectious, environmental, and occupational diseases. In 2019, the office’s name was changed to the Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health to reflect increasing emphasis on non-genomic precision health applications in public health.
