In this session, we will explore how “precision” public health approaches can help reduce the burden of heart disease and cancer due to inherited mutations. Dr. Knowles will lead with a presentation on population-based and cascade approaches to identify patients and families with familial hypercholesterolemia. Ms. Hampel will present on population-based and cascade approaches to identify patients and families with Lynch syndrome. The webinar will conclude with time for discussion and Q&A on implications for other conditions and the pros and cons of adult genetic screening.
