It begins with you: the BRCA genes in the Ashkenazi Jewish population

A recent article was featured in the Fall edition of the Journal of Family Practice Oncology, written by two of our own BRCAinBC committee members –  Allison Mindlin, Genetic Counsellor, BC Cancer Hereditary Cancer Program and Dr. Rona Cheifetz, Medical Lead, Hereditary High Risk Clinic, BC Cancer. We are very proud of the hard work of all members of our committee, who continue to work diligently to spread awareness of the importance of BRCA gene testing for the Ashkenazi Jewish population here in BC.
