Our goal in hosting this Symposium is to demonstrate the range of perspectives in Native communities on genomics, highlight key topics for ongoing community conversation, and create a video recording of the conversations that can be shared with Native communities as they host similar conversations across Indian Country. We plan to feature four panels of speakers—including Dr. Ron Whitener (University of Washington), Dr. Nanibaa' Garrison (Vanderbilt University), Dr. Sarah Anzick (NIH/Rocky Mountain Laboratories), Dr. Rosita Worl (Sealaska Heritage Institute), Valerie Segrest (Northwest Indian College), and Dr. Francine Gachupin (University of Arizona)—who will discuss the following topics:
Can genetics research improve Native health?
The ethics of blood
Genomics & ancestry: Ethics, origins, and policy
Insights from the field: Next generation Native...
