Did you know that there is only a 0.5% genetic variation between human beings?

Join us on June 8th for a FREE special panel discussion featuring Dr. Khalil Muhammad and Dr. Amy McGuire as we explore the future of genomics.  Become engaged in race and medicine, the history of genomics, the psychosocial impacts of genetic testing, and the increasing significance of genomics in our lives and in the world of medicine. The discussion will focus on the minuscule  0.5% genetic variation in humans and how that difference impacts our health.  Has modern day genetics evolved from its history of eugenics?

The panel will discuss the social determinants of health as well as modern genomics and ethics.
