This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.   

Linda talks with Dr. Ora Gordon about an exciting new genetic test called riskScore.

It is a personalized medicine tool designed to predict a woman’s 5-year and lifetime risk of developing breast cancer by combining genetic markers throughout the genome wither her family and clinical history.

Dr. Ora Gordon is a nationally recognized expert in hereditary cancer and medical director of the Regional Center for Clinical Genetics and Genomes for Providence Southern California and a professor of Genetics at the John Wayne Cancer Institute and Associate Professor of Genetics at UCLA Geffin School of Medicine.
