In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Metropolitan New York Registry (MNYR) is hosting our first ever webinar!
On October 21st from 12 – 1 PM, we will host a panel of our researchers to explain some of the research findings from the first 25 years of the MNYR, what we will study in the future, and answer your questions!
The first 15 minutes will be presentations of published and ongoing research from Dr. Mary Beth Terry, the principal investigator of the MNYR, and other local researchers. The remainder of time will be dedicated to a Q&A session. We invite you to bring your questions about breast and ovarian cancer.
We hope to see you there!
Columbia Network for Empowerment, Awareness and Risk Reduction (NEARR) Program Spring 2018 Conference
In April 2018, MNYR Principal Investigator Dr. Mary Beth Terry and co-investigator Dr. Wendy Chung were part of a panel discussion about cancer risk in BRCA1/2 mutation carriers. Topics covered included current risk estimates for carriers, updates on screening, chemoprevention and treatment, sharing information with one’s family and the role of non-genetic factors in minimizing risk. Materials and a video recording of the event can be found on the NEARR Program website.
