Web site is moving to a new location

The resources and courses on this website are being updated and moved at the end of this month. In August, you will be redirected to Clinical and Continuing Education at the Jackson Laboratory. Much of the content has already been moved. We encourage you to visit the new materials and change your bookmarks.

NCHPEG & partners release two new programs!

NCHPEG, The Jackson Laboratory, and partners are excited to announce the launch of two new educational programs for pediatric and neurology providers

Genomics for Child Neurology is a program for child neurology educators and clinicians that addresses genomic risk assessment, genetic and genomic testing, and communication with families about genomic data.

ABCs of Chromosomal Microarray is a resource for developmental and behavioral pediatricians on indications for and interpretation of chromosomal microarray (CMA).

NCHPEG transitions to The Jackson Laboratory

Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to announce that with the closing of NCHPEG, our important work will continue under the leadership of The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) of Bar Harbor, Maine. JAX is a nonprofit genetics research institution with a deep commitment to genetics and genomics education. JAX will maintain NCHPEG’s educational programs and websites so that they can continue to be freely available to the healthcare community, while also developing new programs. After a period of transition, the NCHPEG identifiers on existing programs and materials will sunset.

Every year, NCHPEG hosts an Annual Meeting on a relevant topic in genetics education.  Past topics have included common disease, pharmacogenomics, and family history risk assessment.  Speakers include experts in diverse areas of medicine, research, and education.  Speakers have generously granted us permission to post their slides for viewing and educational use.
