Genetic Medicine, Genomics and Global Health
Globhealth Genetics segment workshop
December 12-14, 2017
Organizers: Claire Beaudevin, Mandy Geise, Jean-Paul Gaudillière
This international workshop seeks to be a platform for a collective inquiry into the “global" in medical genetics; how medical genetics moves globally, by examining the movement of medical practices and knowledge, technologies, and infrastructure across geographical and socio-material boundaries, between understandings of the etiology of disease, and between categories of people (experts, patients, medical professionals). We are interested in questions highlighting how and why medical genetics became part of the global health agenda; how the arrival of genetics has affected health infrastructures and put health programs and policies in place.
Programme, participant list and all workshop related information available on the dedicated website.
