Conni Murphy’s career began in Palm Beach County, Florida in 1988 where she specialized in obstetrics and gynecology and women’s health. She continued her profession in private practice at healthy women, where as a team of all female health care providers, she provided comprehensive healthcare services to women ages 12 and older. Conni developed a fond interest in adolescent gynecologic care and care of perimenopausal and menopausal women. Due to these interests, she sought certification in reproductive endocrinology and infertility and certification as a menopausal clinician.
As her career progressed, she left private practice in 2011 and joined the Breast Health Center at Jupiter Medical Center, now known as the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center. At that time scientific knowledge of hereditary cancer syndromes was evolving with a special focus on BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes and hereditary cancer risk. Conni was accepted into the City of Hope Cancer Genetics Intensive Training Course in 2012 and has been devoting her practice to cancer genetics and high risk patient care since that time.
Conni has a passion for identifying persons and families at elevated risk for cancer due to personal history, family history, and cancer genetics/hereditary cancer syndromes. In her current role Conni is responsible for cancer predisposition counseling, cancer risk assessment, risk reduction counseling, and management and surveillance for persons at elevated risk for malignancy. In addition, her work now includes interpretation of genetic data from individual cancer tumors to support the use of targeted cancer treatments at Jupiter Medical Center’s Anderson Family Cancer Institute.
Conni believes that genetics may be the key to truly personalized patient care. She feels it is her true privilege to continue to serve her community.
