TweetChat: Lynch Syndrome And Other Hereditary Colon Cancer Syndromes

To conclude Lynch Syndrome and Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, we held a tweetchat, #GenCSM, with our phenomenal co-hosts Georgia Hurst and Amy Byer Shainman and special guest Heather Hampel, MS, LGC. Hampel is a genetic counselor at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. Her research interests include screening all colorectal and endometrial cancer patients for Lynch syndrome. Here are highlights from our exciting and thought-provoking chat! You can also view the full transcript here, (thanks Amy Byer Shainman for compiling).

The conversation then opened up for participants to ask Heather Hampel questions and highlight important hereditary cancer points.
