Hi everyone,
Just wanted to highlight a couple of educational opportunities with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM).

First is a free webinar:
The Ten Most Frequently Asked Questions about Genetic Testing: Advertising for DNA testing companies proliferates the media these days, but many individuals spit or swab, but then wonder how to get beyond their ethnicity results. The first questions usually asked regarding genetic testing are: "Where should I test?" and "I got my results, now what?" We will explore these questions and more in this presentation as an introduction to the world of DNA and interpreting test results. Our presenter is Jill Morelli who is a certified genealogist and is president of the Seattle Genealogical Society. Join the PNR Rendezvous February 19 at 1:00 p.m. PT. Unable to attend? The session will be recorded and accessible on the PNR Rendezvous webpage<https://nnlm.gov/classes/pnr-rendezvous>. Learn more and Register<https://nnlm.gov/class/pnr-rendezvous-ten-most-frequently-asked-questions-about-genetic-testing/19576>
