MHP Health Lecture Series: “Genetic Testing in Everyday Health Discussion”

 

Assalamu Alikoum / Peace be upon you,

 

As part of our health series lecture, organized in partnership with MHP, Sukh Makhnoon will introduce the topic of Genetic Testing at MAPS this Friday Jan 15th after Isha at 8PM. Among other topics, Sukh will discuss diagnostic genetic testing, predictive genetic testing, pharmacogenomics, whole-genome and whole-exome tests and their applications. We will look at the current genomic research and the ethical and legal nuances of these tests.

 

This is a new and interesting topic that hints at the future of medicine. The lecture is aimed at a broad audience and will be of interest to all age groups – from young adults considering a career in medicine to those interested in learning about new developments in the field of genetic testing. We are looking forward to a good interactive session. Please make it a priority to join and participate.

Jazak-um-ullah-khairan
