Description: What are the impending benefits and risks of BRCA1 testing in predicting breast cancer? Explore your ethical and debate skills while participating in a Socratic dialogue* designed to deepen your understanding of breast cancer and investigate the potential impact of direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing in addressing the disease. Participants are encouraged to review the following resources prior to the session The BRCA1 and BRCA2 Genes and Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer http://www.cdc.gov/genomics/resources/diseases/breast_ovarian_cancer/genes_hboc.htm Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancers: Should I Seek Genetic Testing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPrJTlOyIIE&list=PLRu0uHzo7TdJk2n3iRUlhga_4PwfFYjFI&index=1 Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancers: Am I at Risk? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLLJRaTuZtw&index=2&list=PLRu0uHzo7TdJk2n3iRUlhga_4PwfFYjFI *Note: The Socratic dialogue is a method of instruction designed to cooperatively stimulate critical thinking by drawing out ideas and underlying presumption through debate supported by the
