Carlea et. al., I’m a little confused about the subject (or subjects) for the Nov 14th webinar. Is it focused on Lynch Syndrome or a family history’s factor in CRC diagnosis before age 50, o r BOTH? You might want to clarify unless I’m the only one confused (which is entirely possible)…. I started to forward the link to targeted folks then hesitated because I wasn’t sure of the focus ……….

Hi Tom – The point is to get folks understanding that a diagnosis under 50 is not normal and because of that, they should talk to their families about whether or not other genetics-related red flags show up in their family tree. Hope you’re well.
