Six Weeks to Genomic Awareness


University of Michigan Center for Genomics and Public Health

 


This Web-based version of Six Weeks to Genomic Awareness...


...was created by the Michigan Center for Genomic and Public Health, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Chronic Disease Directors, and both the University of North Carolina and University of Washington Centers for Genomics and Public Health.
It was designed to provide public health professionals with a foundation for understanding genomic advances and identifying the relevance of genomics to public health.

The original live presentations, made to staff at the Michigan Department of Community Health over a period of six weeks, have now been restructured so that you can watch them at your own convenience and at your own pace, via the Web.

Similarly, the Live Panel Discussion from August 19, 2004 is now available "on demand."

Technical Notes

The presentations have been designed for viewing on any computer with a fast Internet connection, like an office network, cable or DSL. With a slow, dial-up connection you will still be able to listen to the audio, but you will see a series of images instead of video.

Presentations have been tested on several browsers: Internet Explorer, Mozilla (1.6 or later), Opera and Firefox. The files may not play properly on some versions of Netscape.

Whichever browser you use, you may have to turn off any pop-up blockers that you have installed or activated.

Also, please remember that this is coming to you over the Web, and that others may be sharing your network and Internet "bandwidth." This may occasionally produce some "stuttering," "re-buffering," change of streaming speed, or short delays in the appearance of slides. Similarly, when you try to fast forward or rewind it may cause some delays or anomalies.



Click the slide icon on the left to watch a presentation.
(Please be patient - it could take up to a minute before the presentation begins to play.)
Click the email icon on the right to submit questions on each presentation.
Please click the notepad icon at the far right to evalute each presentation.
