demic hubs into diverse health care settings and in the community at large."

"By introducing genomic screening into community-based diabetes clinics, we will be able to identify patients with genetic types of diabetes who might otherwise be misdiagnosed and provide them with highly personalized care," says E. Albert Reece, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A., vice president for medical affairs at the University of Maryland and the John Z. and Akiko K. Bowers Distinguished Professor and Dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. "Equally important, we will also reach out to family members who will likely benefit from early detection and treatment and in some cases may be able to intervene early enough to prevent them from developing the disease."

Dr. Reece adds, "We are confident that this genomic medicine demonstration project will serve as a model for identifying genetic types of many other common diseases."

This project will expand a pilot personalized medicine program at the University of Maryland Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology at UMMC Midtown Campus to include several other sites: University of Maryland Family Medicine; the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Center; Bay West Endocrinology Associates (located at Greater Baltimore Medical Center); and Geisinger Medical System in Danville, Pa. Diabetes educators and genetic counselors will also visit local primary care practices to increase community awareness and help customize the screening and testing strategy.

Patients potentially at risk for genetic diabetes will be identified through a simple screening questionnaire, routine lab tests and a comprehensive review of their medical and family history. Once the diagnosis is made using a customized cost-effective genetic sequencing test, patients will be offered treatment customized to their diagnosis. Family members also will be eligible for genetic counseling and testing.

Researchers will assess the clinical
