Prevention

We serve women and families at increased risk for ovarian and breast cancers by providing them with access to cutting edge, cross-disciplinary medicine with a team approach at leading cancer centers nationwide. The Lynne Cohen Preventive Care Programs enable at-risk women to see all the necessary specialists in a single day, whether they are currently healthy or facing a diagnosis. These specialists include breast oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, research nurses, genetic counselors, and data managers. The dedicated professionals at our clinics collaborate to determine the individual risk and best course of action for each patient. This is the cancer care and attention we’d all hope to receive. These clinics serve women with a diagnosis of either breast or ovarian cancer who want to prevent the other, women who are facing a new diagnosis, and most uniquely, otherwise healthy women facing an increased risk. Meet your team of specialists, and begin your journey of prevention.

“The clinics bring doctors together to focus on prevention and early detection for patients. And a lot happens when you bring people together…”

– Lynda Roman, M.D., Director of Gynecologic Oncology, USC
