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. The Genetic Alliance in collaboration with CDC produced this video to help partners who are interested in addressing this important health challenge. The video features Dr. Muin Khoury of CDC; Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the NIH; Dr. Bob Croyle of NCI, NIH; Dr. Janice Bach of the Michigan Department of Community Health; and prominent public health and health care provider, payer, and patient leaders along with links to further information including: specific, key steps to be taken; the crucial importance of partners; lessons learned; results; and next steps.
