People concerned about a family history of cancer are invited to meet with experts who will advise on preventing or delaying the disease.

The University of Leicester’s Genetics Education Networking for Innovation and Excellence (GENIE) will hold its fourth Lifestyle and Cancer Awareness Workshop on Saturday, 12 October.

The event, organised by GENIE’s Supporting Families with Cancer team, will focus on preventing cancer through diet and drugs and lifestyle advice and support.

There will also be an opportunity to let the team know your views about how they can best support you and your family.

Sessions will be led by clinical specialists and researchers and there will be opportunities to ask questions, share your views and find out more about preventing or delaying the onset of inherited cancer.
