Lynch Syndrome affects approximately 1 in 270 people, making it more common than AIDS/HIV or Crohn's. The vast majority of those with Lynch syndrome exhibit symptoms of Lynch syndrome but are undiagnosed. Approximately 80% of individuals with Lynch syndrome are identified AFTER they have been diagnosed with a Lynch syndrome-related cancer. Drawing upon his experience in a community setting, Dr. Daniel Luba has developed a grassroots approach to diagnosing and treating individuals with Lynch syndrome and other hereditary cancers. 

 

The “Hereditary Cancer Syndromes: A Multidisciplinary Approach (IT TAKES A VILLAGE!)” webinar will be a source of information for primary care physicians, surgeons, gastroenterologists, gynecologists, oncologists, genetic counselors, and nurses and will include education on the following topics: 

 

  • An Overview of Lynch Syndrome

  • The Current Model for Identifying Patients with Hereditary Cancer Syndromes

  • A Discussion of Why the Identification Rates for Lynch Syndrome are Low

  • An Alternative Model for Identifying Patients with Hereditary Cancer Syndromes
