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.

@zelliej1 @IBJIYONGI @NativeApprops @KeoluFox The session is from 10:30am-12:30pm PDT on Wed, Oct 17. Hope you can join the discussion! #SilentGenomes

@IBJIYONGI @KeoluFox Hope you will engage in the #SilentGenomes discussion via Twitter tomorrow!

@blueyedgenes Hope to see you engage in the #SilentGenomes discussion via Twitter during our session tomorrow!

The #SilentGenomes session at #ASHG18 is an experiment. We will ask people to live tweet the talks, then open up for a 1 hour discussion via in-room audience and Twitter. Come and engage to share strategies for making genomics better for all!

Inspired by the work of many, including @SINGConsortium, we will bring to the #ASHG18 stage our important work in capacity building and training of Indigenous geneticists.

We will feature an all Indigenous and International panel who will discuss pathways forward to address equity in genomic and health care research. @SilentGenomes

Live tweet our #ASHG18 session on #SilentGenomes to hear what #Indigenous scientists are doing to change the narrative and push for more #IndiGenomics moderated by @KeoluFox and @NanibaaGarrison on Wed at 10:30am PT ashg.org/2018meeting/li…

@JenniferRaff @SINGConsortium Cool, didn't realize it was out. I don't seem to have access to it though! 😕

The Summer internship for INdigenous peoples in Genomics is making an impact by inspiring the next generation of Indigenous geneticists! twitter.com/SINGConsortium…

@EllenKuwana @SteveJoffe @APA Agreed. I don't like to subject people to research, rather I prefer to invite them to participate and be free to make decisions. It also establishes a relationship for follow-up.
