Event Description

Genomics research and practice have complex ethical, legal, and social implications for diverse stakeholders – e.g., researchers, clinicians, persons living with or at risk for genetic disorders, family members, clergy, marginalized communities, the public. Widely differing perspectives both within and among stakeholder groups raise challenges for developing policy and practice recommendations. A variety of innovative methods seek to gather data on the views and values of members of diverse groups. This short course will provide an overview of approaches that can be used to encourage dialogue aimed at reaching broad understanding and elucidating areas of agreement and disagreement.
