Genomic Health Inc. is committed to contributing to the best interests of both cancer patients and the medical professionals who treat them. Through our grant and charitable contribution programs, Genomic Health supports a variety of organizations and initiatives to enhance medical and patient education and further clinical research and development efforts.

Genomic Health receives thousands of requests each year. While it is not possible for every organization to receive funding, those that are in alignment with the company's focused initiatives are given careful consideration.

Currently Genomic Health's Oncologic Focus Areas Include:

  • Breast, Colon, Prostate and Renal Cancers
  • Patient and Community Education & Support
  • Health Science Education

Genomic Health may issue grants in support of independent, educational, scientific, or policymaking conferences which promote scientific knowledge, medical advancement and the delivery of effective health care. These typically include conferences sponsored by national, regional, or specialty medical associations, conferences sponsored by accredited continuing medical education providers, programs provided by non-profit health care institutions, and grand rounds.

Genomic Health may also issue grants to educational or training institutions in support of educational activities or efforts not related to a specific educational conference, for example, grants to an educational institution to be utilized for the purchase of educational materials.

Genomic Health may issue a grant in support of third party educational conferences only when:

  • The gathering is primarily dedicated to promoting objective scientific and educational activities and discourse; and
  • The training institution or the conference sponsor selects the attending health care professionals.

While Genomic Health may issue the grant for a particular conference or in support of specifically identified educational activities or purposes, the grant recipient will be solely responsible for, and control the selection of, program content, faculty, educational methods, and/or educational materials or activities, as applicable. Genomic Health does not provide a list of speakers.
