Hereditary Cancer and Genetic Counseling: What Do Black Women Need to Know

Have you or a relative been diagnosed with breast cancer at an early age? Have you ever wondered how family history can impact your risk for cancer? Or what a genetic counselor does? Or what it actually means to undergo genetic testing?

Join the Association of Black Women Attorneys for a panel featuring Dr. Ophira Ginsburg, Forum Shah, a licensed genetic counselor, and Erika Stallings, a BRCA2 mutation carrier, for an educational panel on what you need to know about hereditary cancer and genetics as a black woman. A reception will follow after the panel.
