Community Dialogues provide the opportunity for a group of 12 to 15 individuals to discuss current bioethics issues in an online group setting led by a trained facilitator.

If you are interested in learning about a new area of medical innovation and discussing the ethical and practical implications, the Community Dialogue on Pharmacogenetics will be held from 2:00 to 5:00 PM on six consecutive Thursdays, beginning on October 15, 2020.

The groups meet for a total of six weeks, with four weeks for discussion; in the fifth week, participants will identify key ethical issues and learn about a personal report; and during the sixth week, the group will prepare a report of the discussions to share with friends, family, and community leaders.

This series is being hosted by the Hope and Healing Center & Institute and The American Society of Pharmacovigilance (ASP).  Participants may choose to receive a complimentary educational-use RightMed® Test from OneOme. These tests are for educational purposes only and are intended to provide information and context that will enrich the experience of this community dialogue.

Pharmacogenomics is an element of precision medicine, which aims to tailor medical treatments to each person or group of people.  Pharmacogenomics looks at how your specific genes respond to drugs, and can help improve your health by determining ahead of time whether a drug is likely to benefit you or be safe for you to take.

A “Question and Answer” document is available from Dr. Peggy Determeyer, McGee Fellow and Director of the Community Bioethics and Aging Center at the Hope and Healing Center & Institute.

A preliminary information meeting for interested participants will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, October 6, at 3:00 PM.
