Please welcome Jamie Metzl to the Boulder JCC Book Club as he discusses his book "Hacking Darwin."

Our DNA is becoming as readable, writable, and hackable as our information technology in a genetic revolution that will transform our healthcare, the way we make babies, the nature of the babies we make, and our evolution as a species. But although the choices we make today will be the difference between realizing breathtaking advances in human well-being and descending into a dangerous genetic arms race, we aren’t at all ready for this fast-approaching future. Jamie Metzl’s "Hacking Darwin" is your guide to what’s happening, what’s at stake, and what we each and all must do now to prepare. In addition, Jamie will be speaking on genetic engineering as a response to Coronavirus. 

Presented in partnership with the Jewish Book Council.
