- Advocate with professional societies, labs, insurers and healthcare providers to promote coverage of preconception genetic screening and counseling services
- Develop turnkey resources to enable Jewish community engagement in outreach and education campaigns
- Cultivate the development of “Model Cities” by assisting local collaborations between healthcare providers and Jewish community groups
