Prof. Yoav Barnea of Tel Aviv University's Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Head of the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Unit at the Sourasky Medical Center, was guest of the Australian Friends of TAU in Victoria. An audience of 40 TAU supporters was welcomed to the home of Dr. Alan and Susan Kalus, where they heard an informative talk by Prof. Barnea on breast reconstruction in BRCA carrier patients – women with deleterious mutations in either the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, which results in a high risk of developing breast and/or ovarian cancer. Following an engaging Q&A session, guests enjoyed a light supper and an opportunity to meet the professor.
