Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is collaborating with other organizations in January to offer “GENEuary 2022,” a month-long program to promote understanding of the role of genetics and genetic testing in diagnosis and treatment of disease. During the month, the hospital’s Personalized Medicine and Health Outcomes team is hosting virtual events to share the latest developments in genomic medicine.
“We look forward to sharing our exciting work in genomic medicine and how it is improving care for children in our community and beyond. Many thrilling developments are emerging now, with many more coming in the years ahead,” said Daria Salyakina, PhD, Director of Personalized Medicine and Health Outcomes at Nicklaus Children’s.
The month-long series will include a variety of virtual opportunities available to clinicians and the public. For a complete list of offerings for the month, please visit our website.
GENEuary program collaborators include Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine (San Diego, CA) the Miami Beach JCC, Alper JCC, David Posnack JCC, Michael-Ann Russell JCC and Live Like Bella Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Nicklaus Children's Hospital made a giant leap in embracing the genomic revolution in medical care in 2018, becoming the first and only pediatric hospital in the southeastern U.S. to implement personalized medicine at the bedside with the founding of its Personalized Medicine Initiative. Other highlights of the program include research that has validated the benefits of whole genome sequencing and rapid whole genome sequencing to support the care of children with undiagnosed genetic disorders.
