On-Demand Webinar: DNA Testing 101

This informational webinar explores the promises and pitfalls of DNA testing and adoption.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to use consumer DNA tests to find your ethnic origins and biological relatives. It will also prepare you for unexpected discoveries, teach you how to protect your privacy, and explain why closed adoptions are effectively a thing of the past.
