Understanding genomics: Empowering patient advocates

Are you a health or patient advocate for those seeking support for a genetic condition?

Have you been asked questions about genomics, but don't feel you have the knowledge or capacity to answer?

Presented by the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance, this half-day workshop will arm you with the tools you need to support your community - including easy-to-understand information about genomics, new genomic sequencing tests and test results.

A series of talks about genomics will be followed by small discussion groups featuring clinical geneticists, genetic counsellors, genome interpreters and data experts. This is an opportunity to ask your questions, including about ethical and legal issues, of those at the coalface of genomic testing in Victoria.

Please arrive at 8:30am to register for a 9:00am start. Lunch will be included with plenty of opportunities for networking.
