Angelina Jolie recently shocked the world when she revealed that she underwent a preventive double mastectomy after she tested positive for the faulty BRCA1 gene. Not only did this disclosure stun the world, but it was also viewed as a brave and courageous act, reminding the public that that even the most glamorized celebrities are vulnerable to cancer; the same disease that takes the lives of millions of women every year. Tellwut’s community of online survey panelists were supportive of this decision at 47%, with support from women only being slightly higher at 50%. 37% overall were undecided with just 16% feeling that this was a wrong decision.

Interested in gathering more information about panel members views and opinions regarding gene testing, market research company Tellwut conducted a survey about this health issue. According to the results, 42% of participants were familiar with the faulty BRCA1 gene. When asked whether participants knew of someone that had cancer due to the BRCA1 gene mutation, 12% of participants indicated that they knew someone with the gene. Although results indicate that the mutation gene has not touched too many participants, Jolies goal is that her story will open up a dialogue and encourage women to get tested for faulty genes, such as, the BRCA1 mutation gene. When asked whether panel members had ever considered having genetic testing done, the results indicated that only 16% of participants had considered genetic testing while 58% had not.

The lack of concern regarding genetic testing may be attributed to the fact that testing is very expensive, inaccessible and may result in denial of insurance for the person tested or their children. The BRCA1 test costs around $ 300 to $ 3,000 depending on the depth of the test according to and is generally only covered under insurance for those who have a pre-existing family history of cancer such as breast cancer. According to the online survey results, the top reasons people choose not to have genetic testing performed were due to limited finances, no family background with cancer and poor insurance coverage. This correlates with a comment made by one Tellwut panel member who stated, If you have the cash or the insurance it will be no problem to get the tests and decide to have the surgery and the reconstructive surgery. Angelina has the money to have everything necessary to ensure her health…most people do not!

With most panelists in favor of her action, credit must go to Angelina Jolie for bravely disclosing her health issues to the public, for educating women about the BRCA1 gene and for being an advocate to women around the world. Education brings change and the ability to ensure better testing where warranted.

Glendale, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Global Holdings, Inc. today announced that Steve Cooley, former District Attorney for Los Angeles County, has accepted a position with Global Holdings, Inc. as Chief Legal Counsel.

Sam Solakyan, Globals CEO, expressed praise for his new colleague: Good leadership is the cornerstone of any successful organization – public or private. As DA Steve Cooley led over 1,000 prosecutors, efficiently and ethically, and his track record speaks volumes about both his talent and character. His career as District Attorney is inspirational and I am confident Mr. Cooleys proven leadership and management skills will translate seamlessly to the corporate sector. He brings a wealth of experience to our organization, and we are very grateful to have onboard.

Starting as a law clerk in 1973, Steve Cooley spent 27 years climbing the ranks in Los Angeles County. This culminated with his election to the office of District Attorney in 2000. His election campaign featured a record-breaking 15 debates, and resulted in Cooley capturing nearly two-thirds of the vote. Upon winning the election, he became the first attorney with trial experience to be elected District Attorney since 1984. Cooley was subsequently re-elected twice – in 2004 and 2008 becoming the first Los Angeles District Attorney in the last 70 years to be elected for three consecutive terms

During his reign as District Attorney, Cooley made vast and innovative contributions which helped establish the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office as the nations largest prosecutorial agency. His six years of experience as a reserve officer with the Los Angeles Police Department provided him with unique insight which he applied when leading a massive reorganization of the DAs Office. The dramatic changes implemented by Steve Cooley have resulted in prosecution efforts which are widely considered to be unparalleled in scale and effectiveness. In the process he also cultivated a team capable of fighting crime on the streets and in court.

During his tenure, Cooley created the Public Integrity Division which prosecutes politicians whose misconduct has gone unpunished for years. His accomplishments in this arena (and others) have garnered numerous awards and commendations. Cooley also formed the Justice System Integrity Division, which holds judges, attorneys, police officers and others working in the justice system accountable if they break the law.

I have admired him for many years and his career has had a huge influence on me, and in fact inspired me to become a reserve duty peace officer. I hope his presence here will have the same influence on the entire Global team. Just being around him drives you to be a more effective leader. said Sam Solakyan, CEO of Global Holdings Inc.

Cooley stated that the admiration is mutual: I have been fortunate to call Sam my friend for several years now and have watched his accomplishments in both the business and philanthropic arenas with great pride. I am honored to work with him.
