What’s Jewish About BRCA       Jean Therapy

Experts Discuss Your Risk For Hereditary Cancers:
Breast, Ovarian, Prostate, Pancreatic, and Melanoma. 

Our community partner, The Center for Jewish Genetics is proud to present a panel discussion designed to educate young women and men in the community about hereditary cancer, identification of high risk individuals, and proactive steps that individuals can take to reduce that risk. This program is designed to specifically meet the needs of a 20's-early 40's audience, although anyone with questions or concerns about hereditary cancer will find this information enlightening and these resources helpful.

This educational panel will be followed by the Center's annual outreach event: Jean Therapy 2016 by the Associate Board of the Center for Jewish Genetics. Join other young men and women for an evening of shopping, socializing, and sushi! Shop from some of Chicago's hottest boutiques including: Verdant Matter, K. Amato, Fixture Boutique, Village Paperie, Whitney Mercado Accessories, and Milk Handmade, while enjoying world-class sushi with your friends.

If you have any questions or concerns about hereditary cancer, please see the Center's website or call the Center at: 312-357-4718. For more information about this event, also contact the Center at any time.
