The Greenberg Skeletal Dysplasia
This is a monthly clinical conference. The target audience for the lecture series are physicians, postdoctoral trainees in genetics, genetic counselors, physician assistants, nurses, and genetic laboratory personnel who may have an interest in the clinical issues related to skeletal dysplasias. A typical conference includes local speakers who are selected and invited to discuss clinical topics specific to skeletal dysplasias (e.g. sleep studies, hearing assessment), current clinic research related to skeletal dysplasias (e.g. obstetrical anesthesia in dwarf women) or current advances in the genetics of skeletal dysplasias (e.g. discovery of the causative gene for fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva).
