Personal Genetics Education Project

pgEd staff and affiliates have participated in speaker series at local libraries, in Science Cafés, and advised politicians and educational institutions on including an ethics perspective in genetics education.

Since our mission is to foster discussion about the personal and social issues in genetics, we are happy to be able to add our voices to the conversation in settings outside of traditional classrooms.

We encourage individuals and groups to use our materials, which are freely available on-line. Our lesson plans, particularly “What is Personal Genetics,” are easily adapted for general audiences, and our blog often highlights news and articles that serve as great conversation starters or tools around which to build a discussion.

Please contact Dana Waring at dwaring@pged.med.harvard.edu to discuss an event or project where we may be able to share some of our materials or perspectives.
