Meet Allison, Beth, and Chris. They share their perspectives on key points they think people should know about genetics and how genome sequencing is changing medicine. A central message and one of pgEd’s favorites – our genes are only part of the story of who we are and what our future holds. We hope their stories inspire you to add your voice to the conversation. We invite you to post comments and share your thoughts on pgEd’s YouTube channel. Thank you!
- Genetics gets personal: Allison, Chris, Mike, and Paul share stories about the personal impacts of genetic information, in terms of how it affects specific health issues and also how we think about our own identities.
- Debating the issues: Alison, Chris, Paul, and the people who participated in our roundtable discussion discuss the distinction between a trait versus a disease and how reproductive technologies should be used. Many questions are raised, and there are no simple answers. What do you think?
- Joining the conversation: Amy, Enrique, Elizabeth, and Linda weigh in on why it is important to add your voice the conversation, no matter who you are or what your experiences have been. Dig in to discuss the excitement surrounding genetics as well as the implications.
