Virtual event to address long-term planning for children with complex needs

GAFP and the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Maternal and Child Healthcare Division are encouraging GAFP members and applicable allied staff to register for an educational program that will address long-term planning for children with complex health care needs. The online event will take place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, September 30.

The event will be hosted by the Southeast Regional Genetics Network (SERN), and it will feature a talk by Christine Matus, who is a founding attorney with the Matus Law Firm.

SERN’s goal is to “improve health equity and health outcomes in individuals with genetic conditions, reduce morbidity and mortality caused by genetic conditions (including congenital and metabolic disorders), and improve the quality of coordinated and comprehensive genetic services to children and their families.”
