Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer: New CDC Information

This week, we highlight new CDC information to help women understand the basics of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, genetic counseling and testing. Please visit our new page for information.  

The Office of Public Health Genomics provides updated and credible information on how genomic information and family health history can improve health and influence policy and practice. We highlight news and information on the use of genomic tests and other applications, including family health history, in clinical and public health practice and programs, along with relevant data, policy, and legislation. We hope the update is informative to practitioners, policy makers, consumers, and researchers. Please send your comments to genetics@cdc.gov.
