This is a course from a previous year. View the current courses

First year students take part in an educational outreach project. They can work in pairs or alone. Each group identifies an audience to whom they would like to give a presentation about some aspect of the genetic counseling field. It can be focused on science, counseling or some other aspect such as ethics. The most popular choice for an audience is school-based, from elementary school to college. Other audiences have included seniors in an assisted-living facility, and adults and children attending a health fair in Harlem.
