Genetic Alliance

"Genetic Alliance is the world’s leading nonprofit health advocacy organization committed to transforming health through genetics and promoting an environment of openness centered on the health of individuals, families, and communities."

Pursuing their mission, Genetic Alliance worked with Monarch Digital to create genesinlife.org, a friendly, easy-to-use resource for genetic information and support. Clearly and simply, the site explains the importance of genetics to your health and then steps the visitor through collecting your family history to specific genetic conditions and what you can do about them.

Genetic Alliance already had a designer and graphic capabilities in house, so Monarch was able to create a Drupal theme based upon the provided Genetic Alliance theme.

With a subject as complex as genetics, the site contains a easy to understand glossary of terms. Not only are these terms listed on the glossary page, but these terms are automatically underlined and their definitions pop up on the informational pages in the site.

Genesinlife.org is not Genetic Alliance's first Drupal site. As part of the development process, Monarch also linked the new site into a common login system already in place at Genetic Alliance.

Finally, Monarch trained Genetic Alliance personnel on maintaining content of the site and assisted in bringing the site online.
