Only a small percentage of people in their 50s and early 60s have had their DNA tested – either for medical reasons, to learn their ancestry or out of curiosity – but far more have an interest in getting such tests done, according to a new National Poll on Healthy Aging. Scott Roberts, PhD also discusses the risks of direct-to-consumer testing such as learning out about risks for serious disease and the risk of false positives.

Using GIS and Social Autopsy to understand where and why mothers and babies are dying in rural northern Ghana

Abstract: Cheryl Moyer, PhD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Learning Health Sciences and Obstetrics & Gynecology, will describe a 3-year, USAID-funded project that involves identifying all maternal and neonatal deaths and ‘near-misses’ (those who survive a life-threatening event) across four districts in northern Ghana and conducting detailed verbal and social autopsies to determine both the biomedical cause of death and the sociocultural contributors. The project, known as PREMAND (PREventing Maternal And Neonatal Deaths), also involves geocoding the location of births, deaths, health facilities, traditional healer compounds, and other important landmarks to explore the role of geography in influencing outcomes.
