Testing for Cancer Risk in the Jewish Population: A Community Conversation
Studies show that individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish descent are ten times more likely than the general population to have a mutation in the BRCA genes. BRCA mutation carriers have a substantially increased risk of developing certain cancers, especially breast and ovarian cancers. Women and men who are carriers have options to reduce their risk of cancer and of transmitting these mutations to their children. Amy Harmon, a Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times journalist, will moderate a panel of medical experts in a lively discussion about this pressing health concern in the Jewish community and will engage the audience in a conversation about the controversial topic of population testing all Ashkenazi Jews for BRCA mutations. Meet our panel: Susan Klugman, MD Dr. Klugman is the Medical Director of the Program for Jewish Genetic Health and a Reproductive Geneticist at Montefiore Medical Center. Susan Domchek, MD Dr. Domchek is the Executive Director of the Basser Research Center for BRCA and a Medical Oncologist at Penn Medicine. Rabbi Edward Reichman, MD Rabbi Dr. Reichman is an Emergency Medicine Physician and a Medical Ethicist at Montefiore Medical Center. This event is open to men and women of all ages. Audience questions and participation will be encouraged. (more)REGISTER
