The NERGN has endeavored to provide a limited number of resources for families, health care providers and public health professionals that are relevant to its mission. These resources take the form of definitions, publications, articles and links to other organizations, and are not intended to be a comprehensive listing. The intention is to provide useful information and to highlight some of the innovative thinking and approaches to care for individuals with inherited conditions. Providing resources to the audiences below fulfills part of the NERGN's purpose.
