Living in the Genetic Age - March 20, 2009

Healthlaw_toc SAINT LOUIS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW's  21st Annual Health Law Symposium - Living in the Genetic Age will take place on  Friday, March 20, 2009 -- 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  William H. Kniep Courtroom.

Brief Overview: Advances in genetic technology raise a broad range of legal, social and ethical concerns. Fear of genetic discrimination remains an issue, as evidenced by the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 limiting the use of genetic information by employers and healthi nsurance providers. Other concerns include the meaning and uses of genetic knowledge in the face of uncertain choices; the significance of genetic information for ideas of self, family and community; and the challenges of genetic enhancement and personalized genomic medicine. This Symposium gathers leading experts and scholars from fields including law, medicine and anthropology to discuss these and other challenges of living in the genetic age.
