Analyze risk factors for breast cancer in a family.

Time To Complete Time to complete: Approximately 30-40 minutes + discussion time

Key Learning Objective:  An individual’s risk of developing breast cancer is influenced by specific genes, lifestyle choices, hormonal factors, and environmental exposures over their lifetime.

  • Conduct simulated genetic tests to identify individuals with a BRCA1 mutation that is an inherited risk factor for breast cancer.
  • Use a Breast Cancer Risks infographic to identify other risk factors for breast cancer.
NOTE: Science Take-Out Community Environmental Health (CEH) kits are simplified versions of our “regular” kits (shortened/modified activities and lower literacy).

CEH kits use hands-on activities to engage diverse community audiences in learning about environmental health issues. The kits also encourage discussions about ways to reduce exposures to environmental health hazards.
