La Follette Focus: Our Genes Have a Story to Tell

August 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join La Follette School professor Philipp Koellinger for a noon-time virtual talk this August, sponsored by Badger Talks LIVE.

Aimed at the general public, this special La Follette Focus series is designed to answer a fundamental question: What is public policy and why should you care about it?

  • Our Genes Have a Story to Tell, Tuesday, Aug. 31: Professor Philipp Koellinger explains how genes are linked to behavior, socioeconomic status, and health, and the interconnection between genes and environments. He also contemplates a future with genetic data everywhere and explains how the role of genetic luck limits the amount of credit or blame people deserve for the things that happen in life.
