ELSIconversations 5: Population Genetic Screening Programs

Illuminating Ethical Issues Encountered in Population Screening Programs


In the first of three sessions, panelists with experience with population genetic screening programs will discuss issues that have arisen with existing screening programs. Topics may include ethical and equity considerations of informed consent, defining utility, selecting genes of interest, and managing downstream care. Recognizing that many people in the audience will also have relevant experience, everyone will be invited to share their experiences and concerns through live discussion with the panelists and through an online whiteboard.
