The Western States Regional Genetics Services Collaborative is a federally funded multi-state project that seeks to coordinate and increase access to genetic services among our states and territory. The participating states and territory are: Alaska, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

Our activities aim to improve the health of children with disorders detected by the newborn screening blood test, birth defects and other genetic disorders.

The project is a cooperative agreement between the Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Genetic Services Branch and Hawaii Department of Health.
