2022 Wisconsin Genetics Exchange - In-Person and Virtual
In-Person and Virtual Live Conference
The Wisconsin Genetics Exchange is an annual statewide educational conference primarily intended for genetics and allied healthcare professionals. The purpose of the Wisconsin Genetics Exchange is to provide participants with an opportunity for statewide collaboration and continued professional development. Sharing of knowledge and practices is an important way of increasing the competency of practitioners in Wisconsin.
This year's theme is "State of the State in Wisconsin Medical Genetics” and will include presentations on a statewide needs assessment and the WI Newborn Screening Program funding and service struggles.
NSGC Category 1 CEU credit application is pending. Additional healthcare credit types are not being offered this year. UW CEU credit is available. Genetic counselors must complete the evaluation to receive NSGC Category 1 CEU credit.
This activity is intended for physicians, fellows/residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, genetic counselors, geneticists, lab technicians, and other allied health care professionals.
At the conclusion of this conference, the healthcare team will be able to:
- Apply new knowledge and tools to their professional practice.
- Describe activities to increase access to genetic services and testing.
- Discuss emerging technology and therapies targeted to treat individuals with genetic conditions.
Funding for this conference is provided by the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Title V Services Block Grant, Maternal & Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Service Administration, and US Department of Health and Human Services.
