Attention Michigan Teachers!

If you are interested in having a genetic counselor speak to your class, please contact Education Committee chair Lindsay Dohany. We will determine if a genetic counselor is available to travel to your school to speak to your students. Possible topics include ethical issues in genetics, careers in human genetics and the importance of family health history.
