The Western States Regional Genetics Network (WSRGN) supports telegenetics activities to increase access to genetic services and education for families and providers.
This project seeks to train genetic specialists to use telegenetics in their practice. The training consists of self-paced on-line modules, webinars, and an one day in-person session. CMEs and CEUs are offered for the training. The training is done in partnership with the HRSA funded Southwest Telehealth Resource Center at the University of Arizona.
