Family Health History and A Missed Diagnosis of Lynch Syndrome
Ann Jeffers Brown has a total of fifteen years’ experience in both clinic and industry. In this episode, she shares a case from early in her career: a late diagnosis of Lynch syndrome. Her experience with a Lynch syndrome patient who missed out on the opportunity of potentially life-saving information, continues to motivate her to this day to spread awareness about the significance of cancer family history, the importance of recognizing patterns of hereditary cancer within a family, and the potential for diagnostic genetic testing to provide different and potentially life-saving medical care.
