Good Intentions and Eugenics: Avoiding Genetic Genocide
The relationship between the medical and disability communities is complex, multi-faceted, and influenced by historical, social, and cultural factors. Although physicians, health care researchers, and people with disabilities all work from the standpoint of wating to do what is in the best interest of disabled individuals, the notion of what actaully is "best" is often understood quite differently among these constituencies. Professor Miller will examine questions raised by genetics and three applications of genetic research from the disability perspective and explore the implications for scientists, health care professional, and disabled individuals.
