Biology is no longer destiny. Our DNA doesn’t determine our health and disease prospects, as geneticists once believed. According to the new science of epigenetics, the vast majority of our genes are fluid and dynamic—and their expression is shaped by what we think and what we do. Our genetic profile may signal an inherited vulnerability to a disease, but our choices and behaviors determine whether these genes will be switched on or off. Each of us can influence our genes to create optimal health and longevity. Kenneth Pelletier will discuss the latest epigenetic research, including the heritability study, and share timely media coverage, including details of the CRISPR babies and its potential impact on science. He will also reveal the organizations and cutting-edge technology that will forever change the landscape of health and well-being. We encourage you to attend and to engage with Pelletier, learning how to incorporate these new findings into your own lives. 
Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Toni Rembe Rock Auditorium, San Francisco Time: 5:30 p.m. check-in, 6 p.m. program MLF: Health & Medicine Program organizer: Patty James
