Description

Almost daily one can find reports in the media touting new and exciting advances in genetic research and genomic medicine. Often implicit in these reports are multiple assumptions about how these advances will benefit our health care and society. The intent of this presentation is to examine some of these new medical technologies and the assumptions often associated with them as to how they will benefit us, to then elucidate fundamental problems inherent in these assumptions, and, finally, to suggest perspectives that could result in a better integration of these genetic and genomic advances into our health care systems and our society.

Who should Attend?

Health care providers, educators, researchers, and anyone else interested in learning about the genomic undergirdings of health and associated ethical considerations should attend this webinar. Anyone interested in learning about the ethical considerations of genomic medicine from the a unique perspective of a priest should attend this webinar.
