Recommended Readings: Personal Genetics

Sharon Bort • February 5, 2019 • Recommended Readings, Boston

In the spirit of a call from Ethan Zuckerman, director of the Center for Civic Media at MIT, for more “wide news” — news that reflects society’s diversity of opinions — we’ve been sending out some recommended readings for each of our events that cut across the spectrum. This month, our topic is “Personal Genetics: Power to the People or Buyer Beware?” We have a few suggested starting points, selected to offer a variety of angles on this month’s topic.

Please note that these are by no means meant to be thorough, but rather, the readings are merely meant as a place to begin our conversation, as well as a way of showcasing some of the conversations already happening.
