Thought some of you might be interested in the following, The RC makes a
perfect grantee.  A good partner is our community engagement project in



The Community Genetics Forum is an annual engagement project sponsored
by the Education and Community Involvement Branch (ECIB) of the National
Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of
Health. Each year, NHGRI selects a different region of the country to
host the Forum activities. In May 2005, the University of Washington was
selected to host the first forum, representing the Northwest region of
the United States. In 2006, ECIB selected the Southeast region of the
country to host the forum, with the University of North Carolina/Duke
University as host. For the

2007 forum, ECIB selected the Midwest region of the country with the
University of Michigan as host. Plans are currently underway to hold
five concurrent Forums across the Midwest region, in Michigan,
Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois on October 12. The 2008 Forum
region will include US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
regions VIII and IX. This includes Colorado, Montana, North Dakota,
South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and US
Pacific Territories. The NHGRI invites academic institutions,
community-based organizations, and other organizations from these areas
wishing to plan, implement, and evaluate a Community Genetics Forum in
their community to submit an application. The target population for the
proposed Forum should be located in one or more locations in the chosen
DHHS regions.


The overall goal of the project is to develop models of community
engagement or enhance existing models (i.e. previous Forums or other
community engagement projects) of public engagement and public
participation within the geographic communities targeted for the
project. It is a further goal to develop and evaluate genetics education
and public participation supportive materials for the community that can
be adapted by others wishing to plan, develop,    implement, and
evaluate a public genetics forum with community engagement in their
respective communities.
