They say knowledge is power, but is it always? As a maternal-fetal medicine physician, Dr. Chavi Karkowsky has seen how genetic testing can empower her patients -- and also open a Pandora’s Box they wish they could close.
Join Dr. Karkowsky for this exploration of the history, science, and human experience of modern prenatal genetic testing. In addition to her work as a physician, Chavi is a published author who uses storytelling to shed light on the human and ethical questions of medicine. She’ll share stories from her experience as a physician helping patients navigate genetic testing and lead us in a discussion of key questions like: How did we get here? What do these tests mean? What opportunities do they give, and which ones do they take away?
