Deliberative Session

Congratulations on the successful deliberative democracy event!

On Saturday, Oct 25, 2014, a full-day event was held to elicit informed, deliberative public opinion about policy governing the disclosure of secondary findings from whole genome sequencing at the University of Michigan. Over seventy individuals were invited to participate in a deliberative democracy. The information gathered from the day will be used to inform policy around the disclosure of genomic results. Genetic experts Robert Green, MD, MPH and Wylie Burke, MD, PhD presented that day on the DNA sequencing process and the ethical issues in genome sequencing. Thank you to everyone who helped make this day a success!
