Overlook Medical Center Hosts Third Annual Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Symposium Featuring Keynote Speaker Annie Parker

May 1, 2015, Summit, NJ– Overlook Medical Center will host the third annual hereditary breast and ovarian cancer symposium featuring keynote speaker Annie Parker on Saturday, May 16 from 8:30am to 11:30am at the hospital’s Bouras Auditorium, 99 Beauvoir Avenue, Summit.

Annie Parker, three-time cancer survivor, will be sharing her journey which inspired the recent feature film Decoding Annie Parker. In 1994, she was among a small group of North American families that was tested to determine if there was a relationship between family histories of breast and ovarian cancer and a mutation in a gene known as BRCA1. Her story of survival has been an inspiration for other people facing hereditary cancer.

This symposium will include a panel discussion involving experts in medical oncology, gynecologic oncology, radiology, and genetics.

A continental breakfast is provided and a book signing will follow the event.  The program is free, but registration is required: 800-247-9580. This program is supported by Ambry Genetics and Genedx.
