Elisa and Jim Ross and the GDF Breast Health Fellowship

This July, Elisa and Jim Ross and the Genetic Disease Foundation presented the University of Michigan Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital with a gift that will support the Breast Health Fellowship under the direction of Mark Pearlman, M.D.

The program trains postgraduate obstetrics and gynecology physicians to develop expertise in the evaluation and management of women with genetic predisposition to breast, ovarian, and other cancer gene mutations and breast diseases. Pearlman is part of a multidisciplinary team with specific expertise in breast cancer and BRCA, and other gene mutation management.

This gift will support the education of Dana Scott, M.D., breast health fellow, and emphasizes the importance of genetic testing with the intent to improve and increase resident education about improving cancer genetic screening among women by obstetrics and gynecology physicians nationwide.
