Celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Risk Assessments

If you’re concerned about your risks for developing breast, ovarian cancer, colorectal or other hereditary cancers, the experts in our Cancer Risk Evaluation Program (CREP) can help. Our doctors and nurses will provide information, evaluation, genetic counseling, and genetic testing, if appropriate, to assist in developing a realistic opinion of your risk status. Our Cancer Risk Evaluation Program Coordinator, Donna Lamp, RN, BSN, CCM and Medical Director, Dr. Marc A. Rovito, work collaboratively with Penn State Hershey Medical Geneticist, Maria Baker, Ph.D. and your physicians to review your personal and family history, create a cancer- incidence pedigree (family tree), and offer recommendations for follow-up.

Donna Lamp, RN, BSN, CCM, Coordinator of Cancer Risk Evaluation Program If you’re ready to assess your risk for developing breast, ovarian, and other hereditary cancers, or for more information on the process, contact Donna and let her be your personal guide. 610-378-2457   |   DLamp@PennStateHealth.psu.edu
