What about My (Jewish) Genes in Twenty-Fifteen? Advances in Hereditary Cancers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The field of cancer genetics is evolving rapidly. We will discuss and explore advances in the study of hereditary breast, ovarian, and colon cancer, some of which are specifically connected to Ashkenazi Jews and based on research by Israeli scientists. Who should consider genetic testing?  What new tests are available, and what risk reduction options are there for individuals with a genetic mutation?  A must for anyone with a personal or family history of breast, ovarian, or colon cancer.
