        The Center for the Study of Science and Religion Spring 2010 Seminar Series Presented by Wendy Chung, MD, PhD Clinical and molecular geneticist; Director, Clinical Genetics Program, CUMC Thursday, March 23rd, 2010 Davis Auditorium, Columbia University With advances in genomic technology, there is an ever increasing ability to predict increased risk of disease and to shape the genes of the next generation through reproductive genetics. Many important questions have arisen with these advances. How accurate are these genetic predictions? Do health care providers and the public understand the limitations of this information? Should third party payers cover the costs of genetic and genomic testing and should they have access to the results if they do? Should any limitations be implemented in using genetic and genomic technology for reproductive purposes? Who owns a gene and what happens to medical care when genes are patented? columbia.edu/cu/cssr

            The award-winning documentary by Oscar-winning director John Zaritsky about three families who must decide whether or not to be tested for Huntington's Disease. Winner: Best Documentary - Yorkton Film Festival Winner: Best Director (Non-fiction) - Yorkton Film Festival Winner: Best Documentary - Okanagan Film Festival Winner: Chris Statuette (Best Documentary) - Columbus International Film + Video Festival Description: "Do You Really Want to Know?" is a documentary about the complex emotional, ethical and psychological issues surrounding the new frontier of predictive genetic testing. The film follows three families who have been confronted with the difficult decision of whether or not to be tested for Huntington's disease – a degenerative neurological illness that is akin to having ALS, Schizophrenia and Alzheimer's, and one of the first diseases people could be accurately and conclusively tested for, before the onset of any symptoms. As scientists discover more ways to identify diseases before we know we have them, "do you really want to know?" will be a question more and more of us will face.

                I presented a talk to the first year Emory medical students for Genetics in Cancer Day on Nov 17, 2009. I was invited by the course coordinator, Dr. Kate Garber, and by my genetic counselor, Christine Stanislaw, MS. They wanted me to talk to the genetics class about my family's history of hereditary breast and ovarian cancers (HBOC), my experience with BRCA genetic testing, my test results, my short- and long-term reactions to the options afforded me by the test, and my subsequent prophylactic mastectomies. The lecture is followed by a Q&A session with me and Christine. Run time is approx. 58 min.
