The National Human Genome Research Institute's (NHGRI) Education and Community Involvement Branch (ECIB), in coordination with the University of North Carolina (UNC), Chapel Hill and Duke University held the 2nd annual Community Genetics Forum on September 14-16, 2006.

The Community Genetics Forum provided an opportunity to discuss the promises and challenges of genetics, with a special focus on the ethical, social and legal implications of genome research.

Two Forum events took place (see agendas below). The first was held at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and targeted the UNC community. The second was held at the North Carolina School for Science and Math, and targeted the general public of the Raleigh/Durham area.
