Faith Based Genomics Education Network (FBGEN): Impacting communities and creating health equity
Faith Based Genomics Education Network (FBGEN), is on a mission to shape the future of healthcare by empowering the workforce with the transformative potential of genomic medicine.
FBGEN is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to revolutionizing Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Medicine (STEMM) professions. We're committed to eliminating disparities in healthcare by providing comprehensive STEMM education, training, and outreach. Genomic research is at the heart of our mission, enabling advancements in diagnostics, precision medicine, and evidence-based approaches for better patient care.
At FBGEN, our primary goal is to bridge gaps and provide equal opportunities for marginalized and vulnerable communities. We strive to ensure increased access to academic, career, and entrepreneurial avenues, fostering research excellence and community engagement to eradicate health disparities.
What We Do
FBGEN focuses on workforce development through various initiatives:
Education & Training: We train lecturers, instructors, students, and participants in Biomedical Research and Development, Business and Professional Support, Laboratory Services/Products, and Public Health Outreach/Communications/Research activities.
Ethical Discussions: We host Town Hall style meetings to discuss the ethical implications of genomic therapeutic development.
Empowerment & Grants: Our programs support socially and economically disadvantaged individuals (SEDI) by offering training programs and coordinating projects for genomic-related studies and improved outcomes. We also leverage grants/contracts to advance gene-related testing, trials, therapeutics, and training.
Community Engagement: FBGEN actively pursues grants and funding to engage communities in understanding genomic-related medical, scientific, and technological systems.
