Genealogy, Genes, and Health

The connection between genealogy and health is perched in the branches of your family tree. Listen to what your ancestry is telling you. Learn what you can do to work with your genetic tendencies.

This interactive program is presented by Joann N. Bodurtha, M.D., M.P.H., Professor of Genetics, Pediatrics, and Oncology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.  Joann has worked with children and families with genetic conditions, special health care needs, and genetic risk concerns for more than 30 years.  She co-directs NYMAC, a regional genetics network and Genetics for the Greater Good, an intergenerational Baltimore community initiative to foster understanding of family health history.  She received the Genetic Alliance Art of Listening Award in 2008 and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities professional achievement award in 2009.  She enjoys living in Fells Point with her husband and appreciates the diversity and history in Baltimore.
