DOE-Sponsored CD-ROM Wins Rave Review
The New Genetics: Courseware for Physicians, a CD-ROM that offers Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for medical doctors, received a glowing review in the Journal of the American Medical Association. With the support of the DOE Human Genome Program Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues component, Sara Tobin (Stanford University) and Ann Boughton (Twisted Ladder Media) produced the CD-ROM for physicans who wish to update their knowledge about genetics and genomics. The JAMA reviewer noted that a thick and detailed syllabus with slides from a CME conference in a cruise ship or resort hotel cannot hold a candle to [this] CD that can be accessed in its entirety at any time.
A second CD-ROM, The New Genetics: Medicine and the Human Genome, presents the same content without CME credits for college students, researchers, nurses, policymakers, attorneys, and others who are interested in the impact of genetics and genomics on healthcare and society. Both can be ordered through the Web site (www.twistedladdermedia.com).
