    Description: 

    DNA is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. This information codes characteristics that range from the color of your hair and eyes to your blood type to health conditions and diseases. A genetic consultation is a health service that provides information and support to people who have, or may be at risk for, genetic disorders. During this encounter the interpreter may face terminology and concepts that he or she needs to be familiar with. The genetic family tree, also known as a pedigree chart, is a diagram that shows the members of a family who are affected by a genetic trait. It is used to establish the probability of a child of having a particular disorder or condition. Pedigree charts are used by geneticists to study the probability of a person developing a genetic trait or disease.

    During this language-neutral workshop, attendees will learn the basic vocabulary and symbols that a provider may use during a genetic consultation.   

    Learning Objectives

    1. Become familiar with fundamental concepts of DNA, genes, heredity, and the mechanism of inheritance.

    2. Recognize the terminology used to describe genetic conditions, and the basic symbols used on a family tree.

    3. Interpret a family tree /pedigree chart.
