This survey is being initiated by the Mountain States Regional Genetics Network's Genetic Ambassador Program. The goal of the survey is to capture the experience of families and parents with the early signs and symptoms (Red Flags) their children may have experienced on their journey before obtaining a genetic diagnosis. This information will be utilized to create educational materials for other families and providers.
This survey is designed with one individual in-mind. If you have multiple children or family members affected by genetic conditions, we ask that you fill out one full survey response per child or individual.
