Learn About BRCA Mutations With Yodeah

Did you know one of every 40 Jewish men and women of Ashkenazi ancestry carries the BRCA genetic mutation, which leads to an increased lifetime risk of developing breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate and other cancers? Yodeah, a local grassroots nonprofit promoting breast cancer awareness and prevention is on a mission to educate the Jewish community about the risk of carrying the BRCA gene and other hereditary cancer mutations. Learn about the BRCA positive gene mutation and its impact on family planning during a Zoom webinar presented by Yodeah on Monday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m. Panelists will include two couples who learned they were BRCA-positive and took steps with respect to family planning, as well as Yodeah founder Dr. Elizabeth Etkin-Kramer and in vitro fertilization specialist Dr. Vanessa Weitzman. The volunteer organization, which is supported in part by the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign, also facilitates on-site, low-cost saliva testing to identify likely carriers.
