Join UHN News tomorrow for a Facebook Live broadcast highlighting genetic testing for women at risk of ovarian cancer.
Prevent Ovarian Cancer Program (POCP) is an initiative from the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre that aims to identify women in Ontario with a first-degree relative who has died from high-grade serous ovarian cancer and offer genetic testing for BRCA1/2 genetic mutations. The program hopes to identify women at risk and provide counselling about possible measures they can take to reduce that risk.
Dr. Marcus Bernardini, principal investigator behind the program and gynecologic oncologist at the Princess Margaret, will be live on the
University Health Network's Facebook page sharing information about ovarian cancer and genetic testing. He will be joined by Halley Sauve, a participant in the program, who will be sharing her personal experience with the disease in her family.
Tune in on Friday at 12:30 p.m. to learn more about ovarian cancer, assessing your genetic risk, and the Prevent Ovarian Cancer Program.
