All of Us UW: Under the Scope

February 24, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Epigenetics: From Birth and Beyond 

Our experiences and environment can change us, shifting our perspectives and circumstances. But did you know science shows our lifestyle and personal history also impacts our health, even changing how our genes work? The field of epigenetics helps us understand the evolving stories of our genes during our lives and even across generations. Join us for this virtual event representing two approaches to understanding epigenetics and our health:  

  • Dr. Anne Ersig, Ph.D, shares foundational concepts of epigenetics and then expands our understanding to consider how stress and trauma are informed by and shape our genes across the lifespan. 
  • Beverly Hutcherson, M.S., addresses the impact of environmental conditions on reproductive health at an epigenetic level, tracing how maternal health can be affected across generations. 

Be sure to join us for this insightful lecture moderated, Vivian L. King, Communications Advisor for All of Us UW.
