Some Combined Efforts company and board members attended the community education event hosted by the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics.  Here is the description of the event as printed online:

POSITIVE EXPOSURE: The Spirit of Difference

Insults, fear, discrimination and hatred based on genetic, physical and behavioral differences plague our society.  Award winning, former fashion photographer Rick Guidotti challenges the stigma associated with difference by celebrating the beauty of human diversity with POSITIVE EXPOSURE.   He offers a fresh perspective on how to best meet the needs of individuals and families with, or at risk for, genetic disorders.  Through positive images and powerful life stories, observe how POSITIVE EXPOSURE helps us see individuals living with a genetic difference first and foremost as a human being with his/her own challenges rather than as a specific diagnosis/disease entity.
