Cancer and Genetics: Understanding Your Risk – Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center/Dempsey Center collaborative program
Do you wonder how genetics may impact the risk of cancer for you and your family? In this virtual workshop, gain an understanding of the inherited risks of cancer and learn how this information can help with early detection, prevention, and treatment. This workshop is led by Kelsey Fusco, MS and Hannah Novak, MS, CGC, cancer genetic counselors at New England Cancer Specialists.
To help ease the journey through a cancer diagnosis, the Dempsey Center has partnered with Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center to bring selected online programs to Hancock and Washington Counties. Using the Dempsey Connects virtual platform, cancer patients and their loved ones in the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center service region can access this program virtually from the comfort of their own home. If they do not have access to a computer at home, people can access these programs at the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center, 23 Commerce Park, Ellsworth, Maine. This telecast class allows people across the state access to high-quality programming and encourages connection between those who have been impacted by cancer.
As with all Dempsey Center and Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource services, this program is free and open to all. This program is possible thanks to the support of Jane’s Trust, a charitable foundation located in Boston, MA, and Hannaford Foundation.
