Transcript of a symposium on Breast Cancer Genetics and the Sephardic Jewish Woman. For years, breast cancer research has focused primarily on the Ashkenazi Jewish woman, with almost nothing written about women of Sephardi descent. In this symposium, the speakers cover a variety of topics, including what does proper breast care mean? What do I need to know about breast cancer genetics and its impact on Jewish women of Sephardi descent? What are the risks and downsides of genetic counseling, genetic testing? What impact will this information have on other family members and friends? What are suitable sources of support and information?
