HudsonAlpha is offering free genetic cancer risk testing to people in North Alabama for a third year, and is expanding the initiative to include participants.

Until November 7, 2018, any woman or man ages 28 to 32 in Madison, Limestone, Jackson, Marshall or Morgan County may take the Information is Power test for FREE. Other adults residing in those counties may take the test for a reduced cost.

The test, offered by Kailos Genetics, tests the well-known BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, as well as nearly two dozen additional genes linked to breast and ovarian cancer risk (as well as prostate, colorectal, and some other cancers).
