Genetic testing

    The ethical dilemma of genetic testing of children who may be predisposed to developing breast or ovarian cancer later in life is the focus of a study published in the American Journal of Medical Genetics.

She now directs the Margaret Dyson Family Rish Assessment Program at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Northeast Philadelphia. She talked with WHYY Morning Edition’s Brenda Jorett.
