Are you curious about your risk for cancer or the effect family history has on your risk?
Education sessions are a part of Dr. Merner’s community recruitment effort, which allows her team to step outside the laboratory and meet the community.
Dr. Merner and her team provide free educational sessions about cancer risk factors, discuss how genetics can contribute to risk, and emphasize how family history and ethnicity can play a role.
Dr. Merner and her research team talk specifically about breast, ovarian, and prostate cancer risks, the role of genetics, and the importance of acknowledging one’s family history. These sessions are perfect for cancer support groups, church groups, family reunions and other community events.
