"Genetic research is information, and information presents opportunity - opportunity to learn more about the interaction of genes and environment in all diseases. Opportunity to examine and address the ethical, legal, and social issues. Right now, today, we have the opportunity
to shape public health policy, the opportunity to prevent disease and improve health. Explore the possibilities; find your own opportunities."
