Sorry that we’ve been a bit absent on our blog.  We’ve been busy on the road highlighting GEC-KO, our products and relevant genomic information across the nation.  Two weeks ago we were in beautiful Vancouver, BC at the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors (CAGC) and the Canadian College of Medical Geneticists (CCMG) joint meeting.  We presented data from needs assessments we conducted of our primary stakeholders (primary care providers and genetics health professionals) to our genetics colleagues.  We were met with great excitement and support for our program!!  This past week were in la belle Quebec City, QC at the College of Family Physician Canada (CFPC) Family Medicine Forum (FMF).  We presented the genomics workshop ‘Untangling the helix: Genomics for primary care providers’ to a bright and engaged audience.  It was a fantastic turn out for an 8:30am, Saturday morning, last day of the conference time slot :)  This workshop was dense with content and point of care information and tools for primary care providers in a case-based format. We will be repeated this workshop at the Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP) Annual Scientific Assembly (ASA) in Toronto, ON on  Thursday November 27th, 2014 at 10:45am at the Hilton Toronto.  Please join us if you can!!  All of the Point of Care tools, GEC-KO on the runs and GEC-KO Messengers are available online now.  The Education Modules will be available after the ASA meeting – so be sure to come back!!  The topics are: factor V Leiden, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Alzheimer disease, Autism Spectrum Disorder/Developmental Delay and Multiple Sclerosis.
