April 18; CIHR Café Scientifique: Genetic Testing and You.
What does it mean when you undergo genetic testing? Do you need this test? What does the information mean and how will it be used? Who do you share this information with? Can this information hurt your access to insurance, credit or a job? How can it help you? Join the discussion and hear from a panel of experts that include Timothy Caulfield, Professor, Faculty of Law and School of Public Health, University of Alberta; Bev Heim-Myers, Chair, The Canadian Coalition for Genetic Fairness; Gail Ouellette, Directrice, Regroupement québécois des maladies orphelines; and Frank Zinatelli, Vice-president and general counsel, Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association.
