Mission

pathway"All individuals with genetic conditions in New England have the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential."

The mission of the New England Genetics Network (NEGN) is to promote and improve health and social well-being of those with inherited conditions through collaborations among public health professionals, private health professionals, educators, consumers and advocates in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut

The purpose of the Regional Genetic Networks (RGNs) is to: 1) link medically underserved populations (based on poverty, rural geographic location, and/or populations that experience health disparities)1 to genetic services; 2) implement quality improvement activities to increase the connection with genetic services for the medically underserved; 3) implement evidence-based innovative models of telehealth and/or telemedicine with a focus on clinical genetics outreach; and 4) provide resources to genetic service providers, public health officials and families.
