The provision of optimal genetic services to children who have genetic conditions and their families relies on a partnership between public health programs, screening/diagnostic laboratories, genetic services providers and families. When the Region 4 Genetics Collaborative was created, there was little interchange of information and expertise among the seven states in the region as no forum existed to support these activities. The Region 4 (Midwest) Genetics Collaborative which includes Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin, has built the infrastructure that provides a bridge between public health, genetic service providers, laboratories and families of children who have genetic conditions.
