Symposium Speaker: Nanibaa’ Garrison, PhD

Dr. Garrison is Assistant Professor in the Treuman Katz Center for Pediatric Bioethics at Seattle Children’s Research Institute and Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington.  She is also faculty for the Summer internship for INdigenous peoples in Genomics (SING) Workshop, a competitive yearly one-week workshop covering the uses, misuses, and limitations of genomics as a tool for indigenous peoples' communities.  Dr. Garrison's research interests include ethical issues in genetics research such as informed consent, issues with privacy and confidentiality, and special issues for diverse groups with a concentration on Native American communities.

Check our the live webcast today. Yours truly will be included in this lineup. #GenomicEquity…

Thanks @edyong209 for raising these issues and showcasing some of the work that Indigenous scholars and allies are doing to ensure ethical research. @SINGConsortium @SilentGenomes…

Important efforts in raising the profile of Indigenous peoples and genomics #SilentGenomes…

An opportunity to work on traditional knowledge and genetics. Please share!…

Watch "Culture: The Silent Language Geneticists Must Learn— Genetic Research with Indigenous Populations" from ASHG 2010 pres Rod McInness.… #SilentGenomes #ASHG18

A couple of years old but still relevant and important #SilentGenomes @SINGConsortium…

@SteveJoffe The panel ended, but the conversation has just begun. Lots more to discuss to ensure ethical, equitable, and engaged research. Follow the discussion via #SilentGenomes and chime in!

Thanks to you and @GeneticsSociety for providing the space for this panel and important discussion! #SilentGenomes #ASHG18…

Thanks for the feedback! If demand is high, we would love to amplify the messages and strategies shared today. We hope this conversation will help make genomics and research more equitable for all. #SilentGenomes #ASHG18…
