    Rady Children’s Institute Genomic Medicine: Rapid Precision Medicine Grand Round

    Rady Children’s Institute Genomic Medicine – Grand Rounds Genomic Series, if offering a beginner meeting for parents, Exploring Patient Family Engagement in Rapid Precision Medicine.

    This is a free event on Sept. 25th from 4:30  to 6pm at Rady Children’s Hospital, Education Office Building, 7960 Birmingham Drive.

    If you have an undiagnosed child with health symptoms and developmental delay, if you have a genetic diagnosis but don’t understand what that might means for your child, or if you are wondering if pharmacogenomics can provide better answers for correct medications, this meeting will provide the ground floor to gradually understanding where we’ve come in the last 10 years in genetics, what answers genomics sequencing can actually provide, how parents can be a part in shaping the acceptance of the importance of genomic sequencing by medical professionals and insurances and what families need in best practices for genetics counseling.

            Adaptive Dance for Adults with Special Needs at Southern California Ballet

            This fall, Southern California Ballet will inaugurate an inclusive, six-week adaptive dance program for adults with special needs, made possible by a recent grant from The Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation, an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation. The program aims to broaden the community and share the joy of dance with adults with special needs, and participation in the program is free.

            Throughout the series of workshops, participants will spend time in the studio with their caregivers, other dancers, and SCB staff, where they can express themselves through movement, be creative, and flex their imaginative and physical muscles. They will learn different styles of dance, starting with modern, moving onto ballet, then Broadway and jazz, even experiencing the movements from Grease Lightning! The workshops will be accessible to all abilities, allowing anyone to experience dance and its benefits. The program will conclude in a community performance.
