BRCA Genetic Testing: Understanding the Physical, Emotional, and Financial Challenges

December 20, 2016 @ 8:00 pm EST

New studies and emerging research recommend population wide BRCA genetic screening for Jews of Ashkenazi descent.  What does this mean for you?  Join us on December 20th, at 8:00 pm EST/5:00 pm PST as we hear from experts in the field as we explore the physical, emotional, and financial considerations of expanded genetic testing, including prophylactic surgery, reconstruction, fertility, emotional, and insurance concerns. A Sharsheret peer supporter will share her personal story and a live question and answer session will follow the presentation. This webinar is made possible with generous support from Medivation, Myriad, and the Cooperative Agreement DP14-1408 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For more information, please contact Support Program Coordinator Shira Kravitz at [email protected].
