Join us for a FREE webinar with Dr. Marnie Gelbart to discover how you can use science in your community.
Marnie Gelbart, Ph.D. is leading initiatives for advancing national awareness about the benefits as well as ethical, legal, and social implications of knowing one’s genome. She is the scientific advisor for The Personal Genetics Education Project’s curriculum and leads professional development trainings and classroom workshops for teachers and students. Marnie is a member of the Information & Education Committee of the American Society of Human Genetics. Her presentation will discuss the role of these topics in human flourishing. She will speak about technological leaps in genetics that are making it possible to learn about our personal genetic make-up and, in the not-so-distant future, perhaps make changes to our DNA – focusing in on the prospects for improving health as well as the ethical questions and implications for social justice.
