The July 28, 2008, workshop was moderated by Wylie Burke, chair of the Roundtable. Presentations followed by discussion occurred in four areas: the current status of genetic service delivery, strengths and challenges of the current system, new models for service delivery, and a vision for the future. Following these presentations, a panel of workshop speakers and participants brainstormed about a service delivery model for the future. The workshop did not address the ethical or legal considerations surrounding genomic innovations and the various new models of service delivery, including direct-to-consumer marketing of genetic tests.
