Recognizing the increasing role that genomic discoveries will play in disease detection, prevention, and treatment, and the importance of integrating these genomic developments into public health, the Connecticut Department of Public Health  (DPH) maintains a genomics webpage on the CT DPH website.  We invite you to peruse this web page and the genomics publications, links and resources included, such as: the Connecticut Genomics Action Plan, addressing statewide genetics service needs, and new resources for genetic testing for breast and ovarian cancers.  Refer to the “Frequently Asked Questions” for more information on genomics and health.
