Genetic technology fuels questions to which there are no easy answers. Every aspect of society, law, medicine, social structure, family dynamics, and personal identity may be affected by its touch. As a result, there has been a call at many levels for the public to be knowledgeable about the ethical legal and social implications of emerging genetic information and technology. This program will address the types of genetic testing currently in use, factors influencing when and how genetic testing is put into practice, and the variety of ethical, legal and social dilemmas pertaining to the use of genetic information in healthcare


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Incorporate into science lesson plans an overview of the issues surrounding genetic testing, including but not limited to ethical, legal, and social concerns that are always a challenge when genetic testing is put into practice
