Robin Bennett presents Janus Lecture at NSGC 2023
We are excited to share that Robin Bennett, UW GCGP's Program Director, will present the 2023 Janus Lecture at the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) Conference in Chicago next week.
Robin will speak on Family History: Exploring the Roots and Branches on October 19, 2023 from 9:00-9:30 AM CDT.
The language of the pedigree and family history is firmly rooted in genetic counseling practice. How has the art of recording family history evolved through the years? What are some of the ways that genetic counselors can be more inclusive in their practice as it relates to the symbols they use and the words they use to document family history? Robin's talk will explore the journey of family history as a tool in genetic counseling, and challenge genetic counselors to consider how they can view family history through an anti-racist, inclusive, and equitable lens.
