Growth in the genealogy industry offers great potential for potential partnerships that could drive the effort to implement family health history into clinical care worldwide. G2MC invites genealogy companies, societies, and individual hobbyists to join us in our efforts to make family health history an integral part of family and patient clinical care across the globe.
G2MC is looking for partners and funders to support a global multi-site demonstration project to capture and use family health history data in support of genomic-based healthcare for every patient. The project will span from low to high resource countries and participants will come from a wide range of capabilities, from just getting started (no online tools or genetic counselors), to reaching the next level from what they have been doing for years.
