Regional Genetics Networks: This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Regional Genetics Networks (RGN) program. The purpose of this program is to develop and support a regional infrastructure system to provide health care professionals with education and to assess and coordinate follow-up and treatment relating to genetic disorders by linking patients to genetic services.1 Each RGN will accomplish this by: • developing and implementing mechanisms to identify individuals and their families with or at risk for such disorders, and to connect them to genetic services, with a focus on individuals who are underserved; • coordinating with the Advances in Integrating Genetics into Clinical Care (AIGCC) (HRSA-20-050) program to provide health professionals with education, training, and other resources to improve their knowledge of genetic conditions and improve their ability to: identify individuals with or at risk for those conditions; refer for genetic services, apply genetic information in clinical management; and care for underserved population(s) in partnership with genetic services providers within the region; • facilitating the implementation of telehealth and/or telemedicine to increase access to genetic services; and • coordinating with the National Genetics Education and Family Support Program (HRSA- 20-049), and provide education to families, especially those who are underserved, about genetics and genetic services.
