Science on Tap Explores Direct to Consumer Genetic Testing
GGC's Bassett to discuss popular holiday gift

‘Science on Tap’ will be held on Tuesday, January 8th at 6pm at Howard’s on Main in Uptown Greenwood. Science on Tap is a community lecture series designed to share some of the scientific work and expertise in the Greenwood area.

The January event will feature Lori Bassett, MS, CGC, Head of Communications and a genetic counselor with the Greenwood Genetic Center. She will present “Direct to Consumer (DTC) Genetic Testing: What you should know before you spit.”

“Direct to consumer genetic testing is gaining popularity, and was one of this holiday season’s most popular gifts,” said Bassett. “But it’s important for consumers to know what they are and aren’t getting from these services.” Bassett plans to discuss the science behind this testing, as well as concerns about accuracy and privacy.

The presentation will be followed by time for discussion and questions.

Science on Tap is an initiative started and organized by the Greenwood Genetic Center. “This program originated as a way for local scientists from a variety of disciplines to share their expertise in an informal and accessible way with the broader Greenwood community,” said Leta Tribble, Director of Education at the Greenwood Genetic Center.

The public is invited, and the event is free to attend.
