The news has been buzzing with Angelina Jolie’s decision to have a preventive double mastectomy after learning that she carries a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Dr. Angie Beltsos is the Medical Director of Fertility Centers of Illinois, and she is double board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. She has received numerous awards and has been honored as ‘top doctor’ by Castle Connelly for several years. She speaks nationally and internationally, and she joins Speak Up! to talk about not only what women can learn from Angelina’s double mastectomy, but also, what women can do to prevent certain genetic diseases from being passed down to their children.
