Our high school teacher professional development program in human genetics and genomics, Teaching the Genome Generation (TtGG), has proven to be a desirable and successful program in New England.

As TtGG matures, we expect to introduce the program to more New England high schools, expand to Sacramento, California in 2018 (site of a third JAX facility), and make our lesson materials accessible to teachers nationwide through online and digital education. Through these efforts, we seek to transform high school genetics education so that current and future generations have a reason to celebrate genetic diversity and have an informed and empowered voice in personal genetic health decisions.
