BIT's World DNA Day Is Back

BIT won't quit.* Now it wants me "to be the chair/speaker at Theme 5-2: Bio-diagnosis and Biotherapy" of its World DNA Day. Being neither a biologist nor a physician, I am not sure how "presenting about DH Kaye," as the emailer of many names (Audrey, Helen, and Jessica) propose, could "create huge opportunities for the famous coastal City by showcasing the growth and breakthrough of life sciences at a time when so many new therapies and diagnostic evaluations are available." Oh well, here's the first email. I anticipate more.
