MinneSPARKS St. Croix Valley: Heather Zierhut

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 @ 7:00PM

Join the St. Croix Valley Alumni Network for a thought-provoking speaking event featuring Heather Zierhut.  

Heather Zierhut is a professor in the Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Development in the College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota. She is associate director of the Genetic Counseling Graduate Program. 

Heather will talk to us about the ins and outs of consumer DNA test. Consumer DNA tests are surging in popularity driven by an interest in genealogy and a desire to understand risks of certain diseases. Heather Zierhut explores the potential risks and rewards of embarking on this very personal journey with an eye to helping consumers make informed choices. 

Cost: $5 donation to the St. Croix Valley Scholarship Fund.
