The Importance of Family Health History

September 19, 1:00 pm
Presented by:  Ashley N. Reeves,MS, CGC


Ashley is a certified genetic counselor at the Cancer Genetics Program at the Beaumont Health System.  She currently provides risk assessment and counseling to individuals at risk for hereditary cancer syndromes.  She received her Master of Science in Genetic Counseling from Wayne State University and is a member of both the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) and the Michigan Association of Genetic Counselors (MAGC).  She also helps facilitate Positively Empowered, a support group for families with a BRCA mutation.



Presentation Overview: The Importance of Family History in Cancer Risk and Screening

Ashley Reeves, a genetic counselor from Beaumont Health System, will be discussing the importance of knowing your family health history.  Many conditions run in families and have a genetic component.  For example, cancer affects approximately 1 in 3 Americans; therefore it is not uncommon for individuals to have a family history of the disease.  Family history is an important tool for identifying individuals at an elevated risk for cancer who may benefit from risk factor modification, more frequent and earlier screening and/or genetic testing.  Join us to learn more about how your family history impacts your health and have the chance to ask a local genetic counselor questions.
