The event forms part of the Genomics Conversation, a programme of activities which involves the public and stakeholders in discussions about key issues in genomic medicine. This particular event is taking place during NHS England's Health and Care Innovation Expo (which is being held at an adjacent venue), but attendance is open to everyone regardless of whether or not you are registered to attend the Expo.
Attendance is free, but advance booking is required. Book your place now by emailing sstarr@progress.org.uk
