Hereditary Oncology Prevention and Evaluation (HOPE) Program
One way to help prevent cancer is through genetic testing. Some cancers have a tendency to be passed down, or inherited, within a family. But it may be difficult to decide whether to have genetic testing. To help you or a family member with this decision, genetic counseling is offered through the HOPE Program at CentraState’s Cancer Center. The HOPE program’s team of experts can help guide you through your options. The team is made up of genetic counselors, nurse practitioners, oncology specialists, and other healthcare professionals. They offer genetic counseling and testing; education; risk assessment; a physical exam; follow-up planning; and emotional support. The team can also help you gain access to appropriate clinical studies.
