Molly Sebastian, MD, FACS has been named Chairman of the Genetics Working Group of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

“One of the first initiatives of the Working Group, done in cooperation with the American Society for Clinical Oncology, was to survey physicians nationwide to assess how they incorporate genetic testing into their practice, and how they keep up to date,” says Dr. Sebastian. “Based on survey results, we will design courses to help breast cancer specialists stay current with this rapidly changing area of cancer care. ” The Working Group advocates on behalf of patients for insurance companies to cover genetic testing. “We can now test for genetic defects that predict a higher risk of developing breast cancer, enabling us to manage that risk proactively and reduce it for patients who test positive. This testing is now cost-effective. While insurance coverage has improved, there are still barriers for many patients,” says Dr. Sebastian. “We aim to improve the availability of genetic testing for patients nationally.”
