Have the Talk

Have The Talk with your parents today!  Jewish men and women of Ashkenazi descent are at 10x greater risk for carrying a breast cancer (BRCA) gene mutation that can lead to breast cancer and ovarian cancer, and possibly skin, colon, pancreatic, and prostate cancers, too.  Many young adults are not aware of their own family medical history.  Learning your family history can empower you to take action and share important health information with your loved ones.  Join our efforts and raise awareness about this vital educational campaign on your college/university campus.
