Check out Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb's April events calendar to find activities to revive and renew. This month's activities include meditation and music activities, plus only-in-DC events like the National Cherry Blossom PETALPALOOZA and Japanese Street Festival. And, as a finale both to the list and the month, check out the Georgetown French Market!
Next-generation genomic data will affect prenatal testing decisions and the quality of information communicated to patients. Existing and emerging reproductive technologies shape societal attitudes and norms about reproductive decision-making, reproductive autonomy, disability, and diversity. Reproductive decision-making and autonomy
are also hindered by existing health disparities, particularly when they limit access to reliable genetic and genomic testing services, resources for counseling, and sufficient medical follow-up care. Finally, epigenetic changes play a role in reproductive health disparities. This seminar will explore ways to engage the public in discussions that can
lead to policy and research initiatives to address these challenges.
When: April 8, 2019 5 – 7 p.m.
Where: Ross Hall 117
Registration: The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required by April 5: https://tinyurl.com/univsem2
