Participate in "Building Trustworthiness in PCORnet"

Genetic Alliance helps to coordinate PCORnet-the national clinical research network. As PCORnet grows, we are keenly aware that instead of asking the public to trust us, we must ask how it is that we are or are not trustworthy. Please join us to discuss ethics, trust, and engagement in research overall.

Genetic Alliance and Private Access Launches

PEER helps to build communities of people who appreciate the need for accelerating medical research and who have value deciding why and with whom they entrust their personal health information.  

BioTrust holds the space for individuals, families, and communities to participate in translational research.  The revolution in health will only happen in a trust environment with people at the heart of it. BioTrust examines and creates policies, and provides novel tools for participants to actively engage in research.  The BioTrust Ethics Team, together with the Genetic Alliance Institutional Review Board, provides oversight.

With better health as the goal, Genetic Alliance puts genetic and genomic information into context for individuals and families. Our tools increase access to services and provide the information people need, when they need it. From family health history to whole genome sequencing, our combination of accessible, culturally competent print and web resources, multimedia, and health information technologies empower people to make healthy decisions.

Engaged families are informed, educated and have access to information and services when they need them most. If you are planning a family or advocating for your child, Expecting Health meets a critical need in the health delivery landscape. We have tools that lead to more informed decision-making, educate consumers around appropriate testing and public health services, and help individuals navigate the complex health care delivery system.
