The Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba will be hosting a FREE public event in October as part of our 14th Annual Child Health Research Days conference.

We are thrilled to be welcoming internationally renowned scientist and public speaker Dr. Michael Skinner to present a TED Talk style event for anyone interested in the topic of environmental impacts on inheritance, aka “epigenetics”. Dr. Skinner will discuss how smoking, pollution, pesticides, overeating, and other environmental factors can change genes – affecting many generations to come. The event will be geared towards a public/lay audience, and everyone is welcome!

“Epigenetics and ancestral ghosts in your genome” by Dr. Michael Skinner will take place at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights at 6:30PM on Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018.

There is no charge to attend, but seating is limited so please RSVP to rrallo@chrim.ca with number of attendees and group/individual booking name by Tuesday, September 18th, 2018. Please note, spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis, so we encourage early registration.
