On April 8, 2005, those of you in Boston or interested in the topic of genetic disaiblity should consider attending the upcoming conference entitled, "Genetic Disability:  DNA Profiling of Embryos and Fetuses.  This conference is sponsored by the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics and Boston University School of Law and School of Public Health.  The conference will examine "examine the possible goals of embryo and fetus screening and testing, the meaning of the term "disability" as used by those seeking and providing the screening and testing, the effect of the screening and testing on society, and the legal and public policy options available to influence or channel embryo and fetus screening for 'disability.'" An agenda and list of the terrific speakers, as well as registration information, can be found here.  It looks like an absolutely wonderful conference.  [bm]
