Jnetics presented at the House of Lords

Last night, our Executive Director Katrina gave a talk at the House of Lords about Preventing Genetic Disorders in the British Jewish Community, to a meeting of the Conservative Muslim Forum.

 

The host for the evening was Lord Sheikh and he opened the proceedings and discussions were held on the real risks faced by cousins who marry of having a child which is affected by a serious, possibly life-threatening, genetic condition, and what help is available to cousins who are married and want to have children safely.
