Tier 1 Implementation Videos, Other Tools, and Resources Available to Help

In addition to this toolkit, CDC maintains updated information on various Tier 1 applications including examples of successful initiatives on the OPHG website’s implementation page. An important resource included there is the “Genomic Tests and Family History by Levels of Evidence” list which is continually updated to identify applications which are or are not ready for use in clinical practice at the present time. Another informative source is the PHG Tier 1 Clickable Map which provides information about state data, resources, and activities that may be helpful to those interested in implementing public health genomics applications in their states. Finally, the Genomics and Health Impact Update is another important resource which distributes public health genomics news and publication updates to subscribers on a weekly basis. Becoming a subscriber requires only an email address. Many more sources are provided within this toolkit under the “education outreach” heading within each Tier 1 application’s “What specifically can state and local public health do?” section.
