The program’s goal is to educate local health care providers, via telehealth, about hereditary cancer. The program also will implement guidelines that local providers can use to evaluate hereditary cancer syndrome. UAMS genetics specialists will guide the providers through the screening process and help identify and counsel patients about strategies for managing their cancer risk.
Our teleconference is offered the first Friday of the month from 8:30am – 9:30am. If interested, join our mailing list by completing this form. Any questions? Please contact email@example.com.
As we plan our activities to educate and support the community in cancer genetics issues, we need feedback from all health providers. We designed a brief survey that asks health providers for their opinions about what types of programs and resources would be most helpful to their practice. Your participation would be greatly appreciated and would help us better understand what will be most useful. To fill out our survey, please click PCGA Needs Assessment 2018.
On October 25th, our team presented a poster at the Arkansas Biosciences Institute Fall Research Symposium. The poster talked about Area Deprivation Index Score and the implications it has on our sample population from Spit for the Cure. The sample population was initially selected to test for germline mutation. Our poster and preliminary findings were spearheaded by second-year medical student, Arhita Dasgupta. It is currently an ongoing project and we have just scratched the surface.
