Mission Statement:  “The program intends to improve health equity and health outcomes in individuals with genetic conditions, reduce morbidity and mortality caused by genetic conditions (including congenital and metabolic disorders); and to improve the quality of coordinated and comprehensive genetic services to children and their families.

The purpose of the Southeast Regional Genetics Network is to:
  • Link medically underserved populations (based on poverty, rural geographic location, and/or populations that experience health disparities) to genetic services
  • Implement quality improvement activities to increase the connection with genetic services for the medically underserved
  • Implement evidence-based innovative models of telehealth and/or telemedicine with a focus on clinical genetics outreach
  • Provide resources to genetic service providers, public health officials and families.
  • Improve coordinated long-term follow-up and delivery of comprehensive genetic services.
