Film screening: The Gene Doctors
Join fellow Partnering for Cures attendees in viewing the new documentary The Gene Doctors. Every year more than 1 million babies are born with a disease caused by a single error in one of our many genes. These errors, or mutations, can cause genetic illnesses that are often severe and can rob people of sight, breath, movement, and life. Now, for the first time, doctors can take aim at the root causes of these diseases. The new film The Gene Doctors explores the stories of the people and innovations driving the future of genetic medicine.
The screening will be followed by an opportunity for Q&A with Dr. Ngoc Ly of the University of California, San Francisco and two of the people who are featured in the documentary.
