Thanks To All

Once again, I would like to thank everyone who has surrounded me and helped me launch this new webcast service. Including the wonderful DNA Network! We are committed to doing monthly series for both public and physicians. I really am excited to have this fantastic list of speakers on board. I am absolutely convinced of the educational potential these webcasts can bring to everyone.

In fact, as I actively work on building the next big thing in medical care and genomic medicine, I am creating a novel delivery system for genomic education. Sir William Osler always said to let the patient do the teaching...This is precisely the case with Jessica Queller. No one knows the difficulty of the decisions faced by BRCA carriers better than her.

That being said, even with such powerful genetic risk as BRCA genes, there is another environmental component too. At the webinar I will talk a little bit about those things as well.

Lest, this be confused with Corporate SNP scan companies, I have asked David Ewing Duncan to dispel some of the hype regarding genomicization. He will brief us on the relative role of genomics and why it is important to view risk in the right light.

To really mix things up we have Gary E. Marchant - Ph.D. J.D., Lincoln Professor of Emerging Technologies, Law & Ethics, Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law; Executive Director, Center for Law, Science & Technology, Professor, School of Life Sciences Arizona State University. This is right where TGen is people! We are on the pulse of the legal aspects of these fields too.

Well, enough self promotion. Please sign up. Even if you don't attend, signing up will ensure you a podcast presentation and may just help you our a loved one.
