The Genetic Services Policy Project (GSPP) aims to describe the current model of genetic services delivery, collect information from key stakeholders, and use stakeholder perspectives to translate genetics research into practice that will lead to more effective genetic service delivery models. GSPP combines two associated projects in genetic services research and is a collaborative effort involving:

  • Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau
  • Washington State Department of Health, Genetic Services Section
  • University of Washington, School of Public Health, Department of Health Services, Resource Center for Health Policy

GSPP has convened a 25-member advisory committee that represents key stakeholders such as payers, providers, consumers, researchers/academic institutions, and developers of genetic and information technologies and services.
