Public Health Genomics: Reaching the Summit with Jan Lowery, PhD, MPH

  • This webinar will describe role and infrastructure of public health that can support efforts to integrate genomics applications into various settings. Speaker will discuss evidenced-based recommendations for translation of genomics applications into public health and healthcare, and how these align with clinical practice guidelines and public health benchmarks. Speaker will also present multiple approaches for integrating genomic into public health and healthcare settings, and will discuss challenges and opportunities to optimize reach and access of genomic applications within the current landscape to improve population health.

Jan Lowery, PhD, MPH is a cancer epidemiologist and public health practitioner with expertise in cancer prevention and control, public health genomics and personalized medicine. My work in public health practice has focused on promoting cancer prevention, screening, and genetic risk assessment to increase uptake of these services and reduce cancer burden. I have led several implementation projects using multiple approaches to enhance integration of cancer genetics practices into public health and clinical settings to expand reach and impact of these efforts and assure equal access for persons of all racial/ethnic and sociodemographic backgrounds. As the Director of Participant Engagement at the Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine, I led development of our process and policies for returning genetic results to participants enrolled in our biobank that were generated through population genomic screening within a large healthcare system.
