It's In Your Genes: The Good, Bad, Surprising of Genetic Testing
Tuesday, March 16, 2021, 3:00 PM until 4:00 PM
Beth N. Peshkin, a nationally recognized clinical and research expert with Georgetown University and Lombardy Comprehensive Cancer Center, addresses over-arching questions about the exploding use of genetic testing for social and medical objectives, e.g., who should use genetic testing for hereditary cancer risk? How might genetic testing affect your getting insurance or a job? Should the increasingly big business of genetic testing be regulated? In addition, ample time will be made available for attendee questions. Register with North Bethesda Village at email@example.com by March 14.
