NEEDS STATEMENTInequalities in genetic services for the care of Hispanic children with rare diseases living along the Texas-Mexico border has long been a major health concern. Rare genetic diseases are frequently disabling and often reduce life expectancy, either causing early childhood death, life-threatening medical complications, and/or chronic neurodevelopmental problems. Lack of knowledge of the front-line healthcare providers regarding ascertainment and evaluation of genetic diseases is a critical barrier in providing timely diagnoses to children in this population.
