A key part of ACMG’s mission is to advocate for our members – the professionals who comprise the genetic and genomic healthcare communities – and the patients they serve. From reimbursement of clinical and laboratory genomic services to protection of personal genetic information, ACMG works closely with fellow professional and patient organizations, state and federal government officials, and our members to promote the responsible application of genomics in medicine.
