Abstract: Despite major advances in genetic testing for breast cancer, access to genetic counseling and testing are significantly lower among immigrant and refugee populations. Both patient related barriers and provider-based factors contribute to disparities in genetic referrals and testing. Previous studies addressing genetic referral patterns among the minorities have focused on African Americans, however, there are no reports addressing disparities in genetic referrals and testing in Asian immigrant and refugee populations living in the United States (US).
