Living with BRCA is a one day public conference that provides up-to-date clinical and research information focused on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.

This unique event, open to the general public, brings together experts in medicine, biology, psychology, and wellness, all of whom are united in one goal: bettering the lives of those living with BRCA and their families and friends.

Please assist us by inviting your patients, friends, and colleagues who may be interested in learning more about the impact of living with BRCA1/2.

An opportunity to learn about:
  • The most current information about cancer risks, surveillance, and risk reduction options for BRCA1 and BRCA2 carriers;
  • Targeted therapy for personalized medicine;
  • Body image and sexuality after risk-reducing surgery or cancer;
  • Preimplantation genetic diagnosis.

Gene carriers and their families will also have the unique opportunity to address their questions to BRCA experts working in both clinical and research fields.
