Sustainable Path: Beyond Nature vs. Nurture: Our Past Becomes Our Children’s Future

Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. $5-$15.

Science

From exposure to chemicals in our environment to what we eat and our lifestyles, new research in epigenetics reveals that our children (and grandchildren) can inherit the risks or rewards of our life history. Dr. Michael Skinner, biological sciences professor at Washington State University, explains the science behind these findings, and Dr. Kelly Edwards, associate professor in the University of Washington School of Medicine’s department of bioethics and humanities, introduces the ethical challenges they present. Then, in a conversation moderated by Dr. Richard Gayle, they answer audience questions about the opportunities and hazards that epigenetics research has uncovered for shaping healthy future generations. Presented by Sustainable Path.

Advance tickets are $10/$5 students at www.brownpapertickets.com; $15 at the door. Call 206/443-8464 for more information.
