Author and Harvard University professor Felicia Marie Knaul will discuss her journey through breast cancer and also the ‘BRCA gene dilemma’ facing many Jewish Ashkenazi families.
Felicia will present her highly acclaimed book Beauty without the Breast (distributed by Harvard University Press) and enlighten us to all her challenges and outcomes. She runs the Harvard Global Equity Initiative, founded the Mexican NGO Tómatelo a Pecho (dedicated to promoting research, awareness, and early detection of breast cancer), and is a recognized leader in global efforts to improve access to cancer care and control. She and her family have been with HBT for almost 50 years.
Rabbi Dow Marmur will introduce Felicia and the topic. A specialist from Princess Margaret will join us to answer questions of a medical nature.
Be sure to mark your calendars for this very special presentation and book launch.
