Event Description:

Did you know there are more than 20,000 human genes?

In recent years, we’ve learned so much about how genes work and why some diseases run in families. While we can’t change our genes, knowing we have a higher‑than‑average chance of developing certain diseases can help us take steps to lower our risks for cancer.

In our second segment of Cancer, Genetics and You, you’ll hear a powerful personal story from Karla, a woman facing a strong family history of breast cancer and how she managed it. Presenting with her are two incredible medical experts explaining every step of Karla’s journey.

Presenters:

Karla Brooks, personal story

Stephanie Hayes, Genetic Nurse Practitioner

Jennifer Foster, General and Breast Surgeon
