A great deal of information is obtained through genomic sequencing and such information is highly heterogeneous, ranging from frankly uninterpretable to highly informative regarding the risk for future health conditions. Jim Evans, MD, PhD, will discuss some of these challenges and a variety of potential solutions.
Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive telehealth lecture with Patricia Cadle, BCC (Oncology Chaplain). Hope is found throughout the cancer experience in a variety of ways. Come and learn how to empower yourself and your loved ones during a cancer journey. Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer (Q & A) section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information! While these lectures are viewable online, we recommend watching them at one of our Lunch and Learn sites. Please contact us for more information and for assistance locating a site near you.
