BRCA Testing:  Think It's Not For You?  Think Again!

Hadassah Medical Organization of Greater Atlanta is partnering with Emory’s JScreen Program and the Winship Cancer Institute to present an educational event on the BRCA gene and testing on Tuesday, September 17, at Congregation Or Hadash, 7460 Trowbridge Road in Sandy Springs.   The event begins at 7pm.

Did you know that Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jews are at 10 times greater risk to have a mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, regardless of their personal or family history of cancer? A BRCA mutation puts a person at greater risk for certain cancers, including breast, ovarian, pancreatic and prostate. Anyone with a mutation also has a 50 percent chance of passing it down to each of his/her male and female children.

JScreen is launching THE PEACH BRCA Study, which includes free testing.  Join us at this educational event to find out more about BRCA, the study itself and to see if you're eligible to participate.
