Community Engagement

Comprehension of genetics and genetic risk is essential for informed clinical decisions between providers, patients, and families. Perceptions and attitudes towards personal genome information are poorly understood across populations. In partnership with The Centers for Community and Academic Research Partnerships (CCARP), The Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine (IPM) is developing active community engagement programs engaging patients and communities in research and education in ethical, social, and legal implications of genomic medicine.
