The BBU Office for Students with Disabilities operates within the BBU Rector’s office, with the objectives of facilitating and supporting the inclusion of students with diverse learning needs in university life, as well as informing teachers and students about accessibility and disability. In this direction, OSD offers a series of educational events on accessibility (physical and social), some of them with the participation of foundations, associations, and institutions (national and international) actively involved in ensuring a barrier-free life for people with disabilities.
During this workshop, you will be able to find out what genetic disorders are and the usefulness of genetic counselling in their management will be discussed. Genetic counselling involves interpretation of medical and family history to assess the risk of transmission or inheritance of genetic disorders, information on prevention possibilities, genetic testing, its advantages and limitations, new research in the field, and specific psychological counselling.
We are waiting for you with tea, coffee, and other goodies, at the OSD office (Dorm III, ground floor, Hasdeu Student Complex).
