Revealing Stories in Your Genes

Class Details

The widespread availability of DNA test kits for the public allows consumers to learn new information about themselves. When customers receive the results, sometimes they receive more than details about their ancestry and potential genetic health risks – the results reveal new stories to them. In this webinar our presenters from the Pollak Library at California State University, Fullerton will discuss their successful exhibit "History in Our Genes: Human DNA" -- which examined the science and concepts behind the tests; and will share related programming presented in celebration of National DNA Day (April 25th), during the exhibit run. They will include a peek at their upcoming hosting of Politics of Yellow Fever in Alexander Hamilton’s America, a traveling exhibit from the NLM Exhibition Program . We round out the webinar with NLM resources to consider when planning DNA-related programming for your library.
