Protecting yourself from cancer is important all year long.

The most serious skin cancer is melanoma, and 10% of the time, it is due to a genetic change you're born with that increases the risk of developing the cancer throughout your lifetime. Multiple melanomas in the family, certain moles, pancreatic cancer, or other early-onset cancers can all be potential risk factors that may warrant genetic testing for genes like CDKN2A, BRCA2, and BAP1.

Genetic counselors and dermatologists are important healthcare providers who can address your melanoma concerns.

We’re excited to share that the Heartland Regional Genetics Network recently had the incredible opportunity to host a genetics-focused workshop in Wyandotte, Oklahoma, in collaboration with the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma.

This event brought together tribal members and introduced them to various organizations and services available in Oklahoma, including essential newborn screening programs and genetics services.

Our very own Lori Williamson, MS, CGC, Assistant Professor from the College of Health Professions at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, shared valuable insights about available genetics services and shed light on who may benefit from genetics services, how to access such services, and what happens as part of a genetics evaluation and genetic counseling.

Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to making this conference successful. We look forward to continuing our efforts to support and educate our community about the vital role of genetics in health and well-being.

May is Huntington's Disease Awareness Month!

Huntington's Disease (HD) is a genetic condition whose symptoms begin in adulthood. Early symptoms include mood changes, slurred speech, and fidgety, uncontrolled movements called chorea.

Over the course of several years, symptoms progress to the point where affected individuals lose the ability to walk and talk. Children of affected individuals have a 50% chance of inheriting the condition.

To learn more about HD, find resources for affected individuals, or donate to the cause, visit their website at hdsa.org/what-is-hd/overview-of-huntingtons-d#HRGNe#HuntingtonsDiseaseo#genetictestingt#genetics #genetics#FamilyHealthmilyhealth
