About Project DNA
Improve your family’s future through insight into its past. Families affected with hereditary cancer syndromes are at high risk for developing multiple cancers at an early age. These cancers can have devastating effects on families.
The good news is that with appropriate screening, many of these cancers can be prevented. Unfortunately, physicians and patients have not been adequately educated about these syndromes and as a result, many families are not diagnosed.
Project DNA was designed to create simple but effective tools to help facilitate diagnosis, and provide educational materials that allow physicians and patients to develop appropriate screening programs.
