Now that the Human Genome Project has completed our genetic map, communities must address the opportunities and challenges posed by scientific progress. This symposium begins a series of conversations for communities of color to assess the implications of the growing role that genetic information plays in our society. Through dialogue, we hope to advance policies that promote health, equity and justice.
