Benefits of Membership

INTERACT’s mission is to bring genetic testing laboratories, industry organizations and patient advocacy groups together to support the progression and evolution of medical policy and standards of care for genetic testing for a hereditary predisposition to cancer. Membership in INTERACT thus provides the opportunity to collaborate with other like-minded organizations working to increase appropriate access to testing. We do this by providing evidence-based input to NCCN and other professional societies (such as ACOG, ASCO, etc.) whose guidelines address cancer genetic testing. We also work collaboratively to produce evidence to assess the need for guideline changes. Through strength in numbers, increasing membership will lead to greater success in improving patient access to genetic testing.

Membership in INTERACT is free. Member organizations share in the nominal costs associated with the INTERACT website, press releases, etc.

Positions and viewpoints expressed by INTERACT may not be shared by all coalition members. Similarly, individual organizations may advance views or positions that do not represent INTERACT. Coalition member support is indicated by their signature on a position or statement document.
