The African Diaspora: Integrating Culture Genomics and History Symposium will be held at Baird auditorium, National Museum of Natural History on Thursday September 12, 2013, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. It is organized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the National Museum of Natural History, in partnership with the National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health.
The day-long symposium brings together health care professionals, geneticists, anthropologists, historians, researchers, artists, museum curators and directors, genetic testing industry representatives, among others to discuss what we can learn about the interplay between culture, genomics and history as it relates to the African Diaspora and identity.
An evening public event, Searching for Your Roots, follows. The symposium and evening program are free; space is limited however, so an online registration is required.
