This project was formed with the intent of giving citizens, at the grass roots level, the opportunity to help shape the kinds of policies which will govern the use of genetic technology in the future. The two principal project goals are 1.) utilizing “rational democratic deliberation” to develop recommendations for the three policy domains - laws, professional standards, and institutional policies - regarding the use and application of genome research and technology; and 2.) To disseminate the findings to the public, policymakers, health educators, and practitioners.
