A key facet of the UB GEM Community of Excellence is promoting genomic literacy in our community. Healthcare practitioners have a key role to play in this endeavor, but often lack training in this area. To help fill this gap, GEM has collaborated with a team from UB's Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, the Erie County Department of Health, and The Jackson Laboratory, to bring you an interactive workshop that focuses on the logistics of integrating genetic and genomic information into patient care. "Cancer Genetics Management in Primary Care" is a daylong event that is open to everyone and will offer CME credits to physicians.
This free, interactive workshop focuses on developing and refining skills related to identifying patients with higher hereditary cancer risk, providing guidance on risk-reducing options, and applying evidence-based guidelines to medical management. Attendees will also be connected with monthly online opportunities to continue to reinforce skills. More details are on the attached flyer and agenda.
This event is free but registration is required. Please RSVP by Nov. 12.
