True Health Diagnostics Showcases Its Commitment to Educating Doctors, Patients About Hereditary Cancer During Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Date:10/11/2017

FRISCO, Texas, Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- True Health, a leader in integrated diagnostics and healthcare services, has amplified its effort during National Breast Cancer Awareness month to educate doctors and patients about hereditary cancer risks.

Research recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology calculated that more than 10 million American women are at significant risk to have inherited mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 and have not had testing. These mutations can cause Hereditary Breast/Ovarian Cancer syndrome, which is associated with elevated lifetime risks for breast and ovarian cancers.

True Health Diagnostics, a subsidiary of True Health Group, earlier this year began offering hereditary cancer testing that can identify whether a person carries mutations in any of 26 different genes that increase the risk of developing breast, ovarian, colon, prostate, endometrial, gastric, melanoma or pancreatic cancer. True Health Diagnostics rolled out this testing platform to primary care and ob-gyn physicians, with the goal of reaching a broad group of patients who might not be aware of their hereditary cancer risks.

"True Health is redoubling our efforts during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to reach some of the millions of women who are eligible for testing, don't know it, and don't know whether they are at risk," said Chris Grottenthaler, CEO of True Health Group. "We're educating and empowering physicians to help reach these women, to determine their risk early on and address it proactively."

True Health Diagnostics last week conducted a series of educational webinars for primary care and other clinicians. Later this month, Ann Jeffers-Brown, True Health's clinical education manager for hereditary cancer testing, will speak about hereditary cancer at a luncheon at VA Bio+Tech Park in Richmond, Va.

"This effort is all about making sure people get the information they need, to understand exactly what their risks are," said Jeffers-Brown. "Every gene we test for has been determined to be 'clinically actionable,' which means if we find out you are at risk, there are specific things you can do to reduce that risk."

More information about True Health Diagnostics' hereditary cancer testing and what kind of personal and family history qualifies a person can be found on True Health's website.
