About Genetics and Public Health in Wisconsin

Genetics Advisory Committee

The Wisconsin Genetics Advisory Committee’s purpose is to advise the Statewide Genetics Program and the Genetics Systems Integration (GSI) Hub, and to guide efforts to strengthen the genetics infrastructure in Wisconsin.  The goal of the unique collaboration is to more seamlessly integrate genetics with Maternal and Child Health (MCH) and Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs public health programs.

The Genetic Advisory Committee has a variety of representatives including: genetics professionals, parents, primary care providers, and more. Meetings are held twice a year in spring and fall. To learn more about the Genetic Advisory Committee, please click here.
