More than one million people in the United States are at increased risk for adverse health outcomes due to Lynch syndrome and hereditary breast/ovarian cancer. Because at present these conditions are often not identified by the healthcare system, many individuals and families affected by them are not aware that they are at risk; however, early detection and intervention could significantly reduce morbidity and mortality. This video produced by Genetic Alliance in partnership with CDC features Dr. Muin Khoury of CDC; Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the NIH; Dr. Bob Croyle of NCI, NIH; Deb Duquette of the Michigan Department of Community Health; and other prominent public health and health care provider, payer, and patient leaders. The video includes a primary focus on cancer, specifically Lynch syndrome and hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, and includes specific key steps to be taken, the crucial importance of partners, lessons learned, results, and next steps.
