MPs donated their DNA to help medical science.

Carika Weldon, a Bermudian scientist at Oxford University in Britain, was at the House of Assembly last Friday to collect DNA samples as part of a study into genetic factors that led to diabetes.

The project is being done with help from 17-year-old Kameron Young, a Bermuda High School pupil.

Dennis Lister Jr, the Speaker of the House, said MPs pitched in to encourage the public to support Kameron.
