Knowledge is Empowering:

November 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm EST

Join the One in Forty symposium to learn about Ashkenazi Jews’ one-in-forty risk of inheriting a BRCA gene mutation. Panelists, including Sharsheret’s own Melissa K Rosen, will discuss genetic counseling, the rationale for testing for BRCA gene mutations, managing cancer risk and resources available for those who carry BRCA gene mutations. Jewish individuals who have a BRCA gene mutation will also share their stories. Following presentations by each of the panelists there will be a Q&A session. This symposium is free-of-charge and open to the general public. Kosher refreshments will be served.
