Program Discusses BRCA Genes and Cancer Risk

Yodeah

Knowledge is power and for Ashkenazi Jews that knowledge can help save lives. Learn about the BRCA genetic mutation, carried by one in every 40 Ashkenazi Jews, and its role in increased cancer risks at a virtual program, Born in the USA and Jewish, on Tuesday, November 24 at 7 p.m. Organized by Yodeah, a Miami-based, grassroots volunteer organization, and co-sponsored by Women’s Philanthropy, the program will feature Max Weinberg, drummer of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and his daughter, Ali Rogin, who will share their story of how the BRCA mutation impacted their family and shaped their health decisions. Yodeah, which means "to know" in Hebrew, educates Jews about their cancer risks and conducts low-cost testing to identify carriers of the BRCA genes. Yodeah is a recipient of Federation Incubator and Women’s Impact Initiative grants. For more information and to register, click here.
