    Ellen Matloff and MyGeneCounsel

    in Health

    Joyce speaks with Ellen Matloff, geneticist, about her newest venture, MyGeneCounsel. 


    Ellen Matloff, MS, CGC is the President and CEO of My Gene Counsel. Ellen is the founder and former director of the Cancer Genetic Counseling Program at Yale School of Medicine and a lead plaintiff in the 2013 United States Supreme Court gene patent case. Ellen has authored more than 50 scientific publications in the field, is an established educator, lecturer and media spokesperson and has received national awards for her ongoing patient advocacy efforts.


    She was the 2013 honoree of ArtBra New Haven for her work with hereditary breast cancer, and particularly for helping to challenge the validity of patenting the genes for breast cancer.


    Ellen’s area of special interest is BRCA I and BRCA II mutations, which vastly increase the probability of a carrier developing breast and/or ovarian cancer. For the past 18 years, she has been dedicated to patient and provider issues in cancer genetic counseling, and the impact of genetic patents on patients and clinical practice.


    Ellen was one of the lead plaintiffs in Association of Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, the landmark case before the U.S. Supreme Court, which challenged the validity of patenting naturally-occurring substances from the human body. Myriad Genetics had patented the BRCA I and II genes, and held the monopoly on testing. This effectively froze research, and made necessary testing unaffordable for many patients, leaving them to make huge decisions about their treatment without vital information. Ellen worked tirelessly for the interests of breast cancer patients and their families.

    The Loss Project with Ellen Pearlman: A Call to Women Who've Lost a Best Friend

    in Women

    This program is about an intimate quest, one that you might easier overlook for something bigger, grander, and more celebrated. My guest can understand why that might happen, which is why she’s on this quest to create a space for this very personal experience for herself and all those who stand in this space with her.


    This program is about loss, grieving, remembering and honoring. 


    My guest tonight, Ellen Pearlman, has found a quest in writing about the loss of a best friend; quoting Harold Ivan Smith, author of Grieving the Death of a Friend, he writes, “The death of a friend is one of the most significant (and) unrecognized experiences of grief in American culture.”


    Ellen is at the beginning of this journey and her way to honor, mourn, remember and reconcile is to invite others to participate in what she’s created - The Loss Project. So, if you’ve ever grieved the loss of a best friend, join us for this very personal and passionate program.


    Ellen Pearlman is the co-author of Fast Forward, a book about the impact of the Internet published May 2000 by William Morrow. Ellen is currently President of her own consultancy specializing in media strategies and content development.


    Ms. Pearlman has served as a board member for Cybergrrl, a site dedicated to transforming women’s lives through technology; strategic advisor to the Billion Minds Foundation, a worldwide non-profit organization dedicated to furthering global knowledge and innovation; chairwoman of the business advisory council of World Pulse, a social media enterprise covering global issues through women’s eyes; member of the advisory board of Care2.com, an online network for people who want to make a difference.
