NEXT SPEAKER: Feb 15, 2018

Dr David Valle- director of the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine.

In a recent interview Dr Valle described his gene-focused approach as follows:

"We are still very early in the process of understanding the human genome, but more is being discovered every day. We know that most genetic differences between people probably have no functional consequences and are therefore neutral in regards to health. Another, much smaller, set of genetic differences directly cause disease. A third set of differences are not causative on their own but do affect risk for disease; they can produce disease in combination with other risk variants and various environmental factors. As we learn more, we will be able to use these differences to subdivide patients into more homogeneous groups that share risk variants and environmental histories."

mBr completes setup of first Refugee Apartment

As part of a partnership with Lutheran Social Services, mBr has completed the setup of an apartment for a family of five arriving from Afghanistan. mBr members, friends of members and A Wider Circle donated all of the items a family needs from beds and furniture to linens and kitchen appliances. We also fully stocked the cupboards and cooked about a weeks worth of food.
Here are our members in action:
