Sponsored by the Precision Medicine and Population Health (PMPH) Interest Group
in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences at the National Cancer Institute
 
The Precision Medicine and Population Health (PMPH) Interest Group in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences at the National Cancer Institute along with Center for Translation and Implementation Science, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute invite you to join Dr. Joshua Knowles and Ms. Heather Hampel for the webinar, "Precision Public Health in Action: How to Prevent Heart Disease and Cancer Associated with Inherited Mutations.”
In this session, we will explore how “precision” public health approaches can help reduce the burden of heart disease and cancer due to inherited mutations. Dr. Knowles will lead with a presentation on population-based and cascade approaches to identify patients and families with familial hypercholesterolemia. Ms. Hampel will present on population-based and cascade approaches to identify patients and families with Lynch syndrome. The webinar will conclude with time for discussion and Q&A on implications for other conditions and the pros and cons of adult genetic screening.
