142nd APHA Annual Meeting and Exposition (November 15 - November 19, 2014): http://www.apha.org/events-and-meetings/annual
Monday, November 17, 2014: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
The Genomics Forumís poster session provides a broad overview of many timely, relevant, and important aspects of genomics and genetics research and practice in public health settings. This will be a great opportunity to meet and network with public health professionals, while discussing their work. Research topics presented include, but are not limited to, newborn screening, family history, genetic susceptibility to diseases, genetic testing in children and adults, and issues surrounding genetic testing. We invite all attendees of the APHA annual meeting with an interest in how genomics and genetics plays a role in public health to attend this dynamic and interactive poster session.
Session Objectives: This session discuss, among several topics: 1. how genetic variations may influence disease susceptibility. 2. Current issues associated with genomics and individuals, families, and communities. 3. Current issues associated with Gene sequencing, genotyping and genetic testing.
