GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Genetic testing has been a hot topic ever since Angelina Jolie went public with her decision to get a double mastectomy.
It's one of the many topics up for discussion at this year's 12th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Association Education Conference.
Certified genetic counselor, Shari Baldinger, was on KARE 11 Sunrise to talk about why some people choose to have genetic testing done.
Baldinger is among the speakers at this year's education conference.
It's taking place on Saturday, October 12 at the Minneapolis Convention Center from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
