Live online discussion on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) open to public

The massive open online course, “Science and Politics of the GMO,” is hosting a session on “How should we assess GMO’s?” The session will be held Sept. 23, 12:30-1:30 p.m. Risk assessment differs for different people of different standpoints; whether you work for Monsanto, a government agency, are grocery shopping to feed your family, or are trying to grow crops in different countries of the world with access to limited tools. Steven Druker, a public interest attorney and prominent critic and commentator on the risks of GMOs, will hold a live discussion about these concerns.
