Genetics & Social Justice: Personal Genetics in Health, History & Society – Boston 2019
As genetic technologies become more widespread, how can our society ensure that education about and access to this information is available to all people? How can we prepare students to make informed choices for themselves and for society? In this one-day professional development workshop, we will discuss the intersection of genetics with medicine, reproduction, ancestry testing, genome editing and CRISPR, law enforcement, and the history of the American eugenics movement. Attendees will learn how to include discussions of the ethical, social, and legal implications of personal genetics in their classrooms.
10 PDPs available – attendees need to complete a small amount of work after the workshop to meet the required 10 hours.
