YSC and Bright Pink believe that, when it comes to your health, knowledge is power. That's why we are working together again this year to inform young women about the latest research on genetics and breast/ovarian cancer and the ins and outs of the genetic counseling and testing process. January is a time for resolutions and the perfect time to commit to taking charge of your health. We hope this teleconference will help you do just that.
