Cancer in Families: A Look at Genetic Risks
July 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Cancer can be a silent killer and sometimes, it is often too late when our loved one is diagnosed. Detecting cancer as early as possible allows for greater flexibility in treatment as well as a greater chance of remission or elimination. As technology has advanced, genetic testing and treatment may help health professionals detect cancer earlier and create personal, targeted treatment options with greater chances of success. Please join us as Dorothy Lewis, Genetic Counselor from the Capital Health Cancer Center discusses the important relationship between cancer and genetics. She will cover what current research is telling us and take you through what genetic counseling and testing is like from the perspective of a participant.
