Regional Coordinating Center

The mission of the Heartland Regional Coordinating Center (HRCC) is to provide leadership in the region. We facilitate activities to promote access to quality clinical genetic services, genetic testing, and public health programs for the citizens of the states within the Heartland Collaborative. The HRCC provides continual assessment, evaluation, modification, and strategic planning for the collaborative; facilitates and improves regional communication and networking; and promotes inclusion of consumers, advocates, and partners in a meaningful and substantial way and at all levels of organizational structure.
