Webinar: What’s Jewish about Breast Cancer?
Friday, June 26, 2020 @ 10:30am

Join us for a webinar in partnership with Sharsheret, a nonprofit organization that improves the lives of Jewish women and families living with or at increased genetic risk for breast or ovarian cancer through personalized support and saves lives through educational outreach.

1 in 40 Ashkenazi Jews – men and women – carries a BRCA gene mutation, nearly 10 times the rate of the general population, making Jewish families significantly more susceptible to hereditary breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Rebecca Koren, LCSW, Sharsheret’s Illinois Program Coordinator will present about the unique issues that impact Jewish women facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer, how to create programs/provide care that is sensitive to the needs of the Jewish community, and how Sharsheret can help along the way.
