DNA, Race, Medicine on Cultural Diversity Institute’s Show Bill

Carson, CA—Fifteen films and videos on ramifications of human gene technology, DNA’s affects on those who have had their genes “read,” whether race still matters, Chinese medicine, alternative medicine and natural healing, how brains of older people work, all are among the videos and films that will be shown, free and open to the public, through December 5 at California State University, Dominguez Hills.

All of the tapes and films are aired by the Institute for the Study of Cultural Diversity. They start at noon and are about an hour long. All are held in Room A410 in Welch Hall, which has limited seating.

Welch Hall is directly east of parking lot 3. Lot 3 is most easily accessed from the Tamcliff Street-Toros Center Drive entrance from East Victoria Street. The campus is on the east side of Avalon Boulevard between East Victoria and University Avenue. It is south of the 91 freeway, north of the 405 freeway, and east of the 110 freeway.
