Sinai Social Action & WTS Present "I'm Jewish: Should I Get a Jewish Hereditary Cancer Test?"—ZOOM

Wednesday, June 30, 2021 20 Tammuz 5781

7:00 PM - 8:30 PMZoom

Mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which increase the risk of certain cancers, are carried by 1 out of 40 people of Jewish descent, ten times more than the general population. Both men and women may be carriers, even without a known family history of cancer. 

Should you and your family members seek testing for a BRCA mutation?  Get an expert medical perspective from  Pamela Munster MD, a founder of the UCSF Center for BRCA Research. She'll be joined by Julie Mak, MS, a UCSF genetic counselor as well as Ilana DeBare, a Temple Sinai (Oakland) member with a BRCA mutation. 

This free Zoom panel discussion takes place on Wednesday, June 30 from 7:00 to 8:30pm.
