Genetic Systems Integration (GSI) Initiative
The Genetic Systems Integration (GSI) Initiative aims to reduce disparities and improve access to genetics services in Wisconsin. Based out of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Waisman Center, our staff work in partnership with Wisconsin Maternal & Child Health (MCH) programs and other state and regional genetics stakeholders to strengthen systems of care.
The GSI Initiative is an information resource for MCH programs and genetic and non-genetic healthcare providers in Wisconsin. Ways this information is disseminated include:
- The Wisconsin Genetics Exchange, an annual statewide professional development conference
- Genetics continuing education modules
- This Genetics in Wisconsin website
Ongoing activities of the GSI Initiative are supported by a MCH Title V Services Block Grant, Maternal & Child Health Bureau (MCHB), Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Division of Public Health.
