Plain Community Clinical Educational Series | Join Us Virtually!

July 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


A new educational series tailored for physicians serving the Plain community is here! This bimonthly, virtual learning series will occur every other month on the first Friday from noon – 1 p.m. The talk series is organized by a collaboration of WellSpan Health, the Clinic for Special Children, and Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health.

The ABCs of the PIP—Using the Plain Insight Panel for screening and diagnosis

Clinicians who serve many people from the Plain Community will benefit from attending the Plain Community Education Collaboration’s next two educational zoom sessions on Friday May 6th and Friday July 8th.  These two sessions will discuss the utility of the Plain Insight Panel (PIP) which measures the presence of more than 1300 alleles for both autosomal dominant and recessive genes that have an increased prevalence in both the Amish and Old Order Mennonite population.

The July 8th session will focus on how the genetic counselors at the Clinic for Special Children provide individual analyses of these tests for patients and provide test results to the ordering clinicians. It will detail how to order the test and process the blood specimens. Specific focus areas will include:

-Refresher/overview of the PIP from last talk + review of the variant tiers
-Practical guide to ordering the PIP
-Consent and requisition forms for ordering
-Interpreting PIP results + the process of reporting

Each session will include the presentation and time for questions from participants—promptly ending by 1 p.m. A Zoom link for the each program will be sent a few days prior.

The talk series can be accessed through the Zoom details below.

Talks from our inaugural Cultural Considerations for Clinicians: Caring for the Plain Community are available to access for your own education HERE or you can register to view the talks to be eligible for CME credits HERE.
