CDC Resources in Genomics and Precision Health to Enhance Public Health Impact of New Technologies

March 25, 2021, 11:00 am -12:00 pm ET

Advances in genomics and precision health are ushering a new era of precision medicine and precision public health. The pace of scientific discoveries is accelerating and the applications in research, clinical, and public health practice are multiplying. For just about anyone – researchers, practitioners and the general public alike –  staying abreast of the latest news and publications is a daunting task.

Join CDC’s Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health (OGPPH) staff to learn more about CDC’s resources related to genomics and precision health. The presentation will review the Public Health Genomics Knowledge Base (PHGKB), a suite of searchable databases that includes publications and other resources. You will learn more about PHGKB databases, including:

  • COVID Genomics and Precision Health, a database that includes publications and other resources about the impact of genomics and precision health technologies on the investigation and control of COVID-19
  • My Family Health Portrait, a family health history collection tool that allows users to save and share their family health history information
  • Specialized PHGKB databases such as reproductive and child health, family health history, and health equity

OGPPH has developed a series of web pages for the general public and regularly posts blogs covering the latest findings, trends, and considerations for genomics and precision health. Learn how your program can collaborate with OGPPH to develop web pages or blogs related to genomics and precision health for your area of interest.
