Find Out How Our Children Inherit Our Life History

Our  children’s and grandchildren’s health is affected by our exposure to what we eat, our lifestyles, and our exposure to introduced chemicals in our environment. Find out more about new research in epigenetics at “Beyond Nature vs. Nurture: Our past becomes our children’s future.”

Sustainable Path Foundation presents the event on December 11 at 5:30 at Town Hall, 1119 9th Ave., Seattle.

Michael Skinner, PhD, will explain the science behind the latest epigenetics findings. Kelly Edwards, PhD, will discuss the ethical challenges they present. Richard Gayle, PhD, will moderate  a discussion to answer questions about the opportunities and hazards that epigenetics research has uncovered for shaping healthy future generations.

Speakers: Kelly Edwards, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Washington School of Medicine and core faculty for the Institute for Public Health Genetics. In May, Dr. Edwards was appointed acting associate dean for the 2012-13 academic year. Michael Skinner, PhD, is a professor in the School of Biological Sciences at Washington State University.
