CSER consortium research, spanning both posters and presentations, will be featured at the American College of Medical Genetics 2019 Annual Meeting. This annual meeting serves as a platform to share and discuss the cutting edge of genetics and genomics, as well as providing opportunities for learning, networking, and more. ACMG 2019 will run from April 2 - 6, 2019, in Seattle, WA.

A full list of CSER work at ACMG 2019 can be found online here. Below is a sampling of CSER efforts that will be showcased at ACMG 2019:

WORKSHOP - Addressing Literacy and Language to Equitably Deliver on the Promise of Precision Medicine

Time: 11:30am - 12:00pm. Location: Room 606 - 609, Washington State Convention Center

Join CSER investigators Laura Amendola (CHARM), Carol Horowitz (NYCKidSeq PI), Nangel Lindberg (CHARM), Sharon Plon (KidsCanSeq PI), and Christine Rini (NCGENES 2 PI) in a workshop session reflecting on CSER experiences in engaging underserved and underrepresented populations in genomic research studies. Key challenges faced include navigating complexities in developing materials, translating documents into Spanish, and adjusting language for a lower literacy population.

Time: 10:30am - 12:00pm. Location: Exhibit Hall 4abcd washington state convention center

  • Numerous CSER investigators will be prsenting on early and preliminary observations of their CSER projects, including Kevin Bowling (SouthSeq, Abstract #683) and Anne Slavotinek (P3EGS, Abstract #301).
  • Alice Popejoy (ClinGen) will highlight a joint CSER-ClinGen effort to develop a survey to query clinical genomics professionals with the goal of eliciting current perspectives and practices on the use of race, ethnicity, and ancestry information in clinical genomics and patient care (Abstract #319)
  • Julianne O'Daniel (NCGENES 2) will discuss the NCGENES 2 project's efforts in engaging patient & community stakeholders in developing their NCGENES 2 study, highlighting the value of stakeholder engagement in the project (Abstract #847)
