Free event: Unlocking the secrets of your DNA

23 October 2017 - Find out about the future of personalised treatment for cancer and other conditions - Wednesday 8 November 2017

Genome

Genomics is transforming healthcare. Increasingly genomic data is being used to diagnose and treat conditions such as cancer, and ultimately it will be used to prevent disease.

Although scientists can now ‘read’ our genes, do we really want to know which illnesses could affect us? Come and hear from our experts, and a patient who chose to find out.

Unlocking the secrets of your DNA is taking place on Wednesday 8 November, 5.30-7pm at the Fetal Medicine Research Institute, Windsor Walk, SE5 8BB.

Come along to hear more about the genomic revolution and how it could impact on yours and your relatives' healthcare now and in the future.

As well as guest speakers, there will be interactive stands to explain genomics and unlock the secrets within your DNA.

The event is open to all local residents. Places are limited so don’t miss out. Register your free place today: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/south-london-patient-engagement-event-081117-tickets-38837585263?aff=es2
