About this course

Session Description

During this case conference, Dr. David Flannery, Director of Telegenetics and Digital Genetics at Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Personalized Genetic Healthcare, will be presenting about a telemedicine genetic consult from his apartment to a mission clinic in Honduras. Dr. Flannery will demonstrate how he was able to connect with the telemedicine cart and peripheral devices from the internet, provided by satellite, to the clinic. After Dr. Flannery’s case presentation, Ms. Alisha Keehn and Ms. Megan Lyon, Associate Program Director and Project Manager for the NCC, respectively, will share resources, tools, and trainings that have been developed by the seven Regional Genetics Networks (RGNs), National Genetics Education and Family Support Center (Family Center), and NCC to support genetics providers who utilize telemedicine.
