Description:

Created in 1997, the Office of Public Health Genomics (OPHG) was established "to integrate genomics into public health research, policy, and programs, which could improve interventions designed to prevent and control the country's leading chronic, infectious, environmental, and occupational diseases." Visitors to the site should start by looking over their "Focus Areas", which include "Genomics and Health", "Family Health History", and "Genetic Testing". The "Genomics and Health" area is a great place to begin looking through the site, as it contains materials that explain the relationship between genetic history and family health. Here visitors will find activities that explain and illuminate environmental health, hereditary blood disorders, and pediatric genetics. Also, the site includes a "For Health Professionals" area which is perfect for current public health practitioners and those teaching about these subjects. Rounding out the site is their "Genomics and Health Impact" blog, which is definitely worth a look.
