The GEP leads a national week of action to get health professionals talking about genomics

Our #GenomicsConversation week takes place annually in March and features a host of fun, engaging activities aimed at all health professionals.

The goal for the week is to spark a conversation about genomics and increase health professionals’ familiarity with the topic. With the NHS Genomic Medicine Service bringing equity of access to genomic testing for the first time, it has never been more important for health professionals to feel capable and confident to handle patient’s questions about genomics and signpost them to relevant information and services.

The week features a number of free activities and resources, including panel events, new podcasts, online courses and educational resources, as well as our popular genomics quiz.

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook so you can hear the latest news about the week and make your voice heard in the #GenomicsConversation.
