Hereditary Cancer Awareness Week (September 25 – October 1)

The CGA-IGC Communication & Membership Committee will be highlighting a different #HereditaryGICancer syndrome on Twitter each day with information tailored for general community members in an effort to improve public awareness and education regarding these cancer predisposition syndromes.

The content will include information and resources related to Lynch syndrome, Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome, MUTYH Associated Polyposis, Cowden Syndrome and POLE tumor predisposition syndrome.

Help spread the word about #HereditaryGICancer by retweeting the information we share and tagging colleagues that may be interested in learning more.

National Previvor Day - September 28 - Save the Date! The CGA-IGC Education Committee has planned a special podcast release for National Previvor Day! Another great debate hosted by Dr Michael Hall with Dr Matt Yurgelun and Professor Heather Hampel going head to head on "Is it time for universal germline testing for all GI Cancers".
