#36 BRCA UCONN Event
I recap the UCONN BRCA event I MCed. It featured a panel of experts including a Certified Genetic Counselor (Robin Schwartz, featured below), members of the department of Public Health Genomics Advisory, Physicians and Cancer survivors. There was an interactive presentation about family history tool, education, and cancer genomics best practices. There was a discussion with medical personnel and patients about identifying risk factors for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, genetic testing, how to find qualified genetic personnel, sharing a BRCA diagnosis, and ethical issues surrounding genetic testing.
