Event to be held on Saturday, October 14

Has your life, or the life of a loved-one been impacted by a genetic condition? If so, you are invited to attend Kingston Health Sciences Centre’s Genetics Patient and Family Day on Saturday, October 14.

It’s a social and educational event for people and their families affected with a genetic condition such as Huntington Disease, hereditary cancers, metabolic conditions or who have developmental concerns as a result of a genetic condition.

You can come, connect and learn from other individuals and families with these conditions through sharing circles as well as meet with experts from KHSC to receive educational resources. If you have a metabolic condition which requires low protein intake, you can also participate in a low protein cooking class.

The event is designed to be a fun family friendly atmosphere, with entertainment, guest speakers and refreshments. It will take place on October 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Invitation letters have been sent out, but if you or a family member is affected by a genetic condition and an invitation has not yet reached you, please contact by email (click here) or phone at or 613-549-6666 x 7962 for more details.

We hope to see you there!
