Conversations in Ethics – Ethics & Genetics

May 20, 2020

Medical genetics has widened the boundaries of case evaluation for clinicians.  With the advances in genetic testing comes the rise of ethical challenges in medicine regarding the circumstances under which genetic testing is appropriate; the process through which genetic testing is pursued; and the clinical utility of genetic test results. Recent advances in genetic testing technologies, in hand with the reduced cost and accessibility of testing, are only expected to bring more questions than answers. 

Please join us in this very informative and interactive education session as Dr. Martir-Negron discusses ethics and genetics.
