The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) is a national medical organization

with genetic disorders and to speak for the emerging specialty of medical genetics in organizations and
agencies concerned with medical service, certification, and regulatory issues. The ACMG provides
education, resources, and a voice for the medical genetics profession and its mission is to improve
health through genetics. The educational and public health programs of the ACMG are dependent upon
charitable gifts from corporations, foundations, and individuals through the ACMG Foundation for
Genetic and Genomic Medicine.

the field. As a member of the ACMG Advocacy and Education team, the Advocacy and Education
