Making genomics more ‘sociable’: talking to patients about the science
27th September 2017
Anna is invited as a keynote speaker by Yorkshire and Humber NHS Genomic Medicine Centre to present details of the Socialising the Genome Project. With an audience of 130 health professionals this was a prime opportunity to raise awareness of the evidence-based animations we have made for engaging the public with genomics. The Yorkshire and Humber NHS Genomic Medicine Centre are now planning on using the animations we created as part of their Public and Patient Involvement events. Genetic Alliance UK were also interested in the materials too. Audience delegates included hospital consultants, nurses, histopathologists, oncologists, cardiologists, anaesthetic practitioners, GPs, diagnostic genetic lab staff, renal managers, colorectal nurse specialists, hospital managers and paediatricians.
