Young People’s Genomics Café

17 February 18:00 - 19:30

Are you a young person interested in finding out more about genomics and health, or affected by a rare or genetic condition? Join us for Young People’s Genomics Café! These events are aimed at those aged 16 to 25 and are run by Wales Gene Park with Genomics Partnership Wales.  At February’s café we have two great talks lined-up!

  •  Ethical Dilemmas in Genetics and Genomics – Dr Alexandra Murray (All Wales Medical Genomics Service) will pose some though-provoking medical genetics & genomics scenarios, including testing, consent, incidental findings, and other ethical issues
  • V for Vaccination: from Cowpox to Covid – join Dr David Llewellyn (Integrated Wellbeing Networks, Aneurin Bevan UHB) to learn about the social history of vaccination with a discussion on what it means now for Covid

 The café is a relaxed opportunity to find out about new advances in genomic medicine in Wales and a chance for young people to meet, come together, and let us know how we can better support those affected by rare or genetic conditions.  The café is FREE to join via Zoom, but you will need to register via Eventbrite to receive the joining link.
