What is a family cancer syndrome? What are the tests used to check for
the syndromes? Who should have genetic testing? According to the American
Cancer Society, certain inherited DNA mutations can intensely increase
the risk for developing certain cancers and are responsible for many of
the cancers that run in some families.
Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, as Bruce Tripp, M.D., radiation oncologist

about genetic testing.
The free lecture will take place 12-1 p.m. at the Southeast Georgia Health
System Camden Campus, Cafeteria Conference Room, 2000 Dan Proctor Drive,
St. Marys, Ga.
