The Western States Genetics Services Collaborative is a federally-funded, multi-state project that seeks to improve individual and family health throughout the life course. The participating states and territory are: Alaska, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

Our activities aim to increase access to and reduce disparities in newborn screening and clinical genetic and genomic services for individuals with or at risk for heritable disorders.

The project is supported by a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Genetic Services Branch and Hawaii Department of Health.
