As the “Medical Home” provider, the Primary Care Practitioner (PCP) is expected to recognize and address genetic issues in her/his patients. Because the complex landscape of genetics in medicine is evolving so rapidly, it is important to have practical, point-of-care information to facilitate addressing these issues.
The goal of this conference is to guide the PCP to “think genetically” so s/he is able to quickly and effectively obtain a meaningful family history, identify red flags, and access appropriate resources to facilitate diagnosis and treatment. The conference will place particular emphasis on the practical application of genetic information, giving participants case- based experience to utilize the concepts and tools in their daily practice. Selected genetics diagnoses will be reviewed and a list of “red flags” indicative of those diagnoses, along with resources for possible “next steps” will be provided to participants.
The conference is highlighted by keynote presentations from Benjamin Gilmer, MD of MAHEC Family Medicine and W. Gregory Feero, MD, Ph.D., former Senior Advisor to the Director for Genomic Medicine at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI)
