Why do some people get sick from infections, environmental factors, and certain behaviors, while others do not? Our genetic make up has something to do with it, along with genomics-the way those genes interact with a person's environmental circumstances.
Understanding how heredity affects our health can lead to earlier diagnoses, interventions and personalized targeted treatments for complex diseases such as cancer, heart disease, asthma, diabetes and Alzheimer's.
Dr. Hofstatter takes a deper look into genetic screening for cancer risk. What tests are available? Who should be screened? What would you do if you knew the results?
The Greenwich Hospital Women's Health Initiative Lecture Series is designed to address the questions that arise as women seek to make informed decisions and lifestyle choices about disease prevention and medical treatment options.
