TAMPA, Florida -- The Florida Hospital held an event tonight to educate women on the role heredity plays in their overall wellness.

Those who attended the "Know Your Genes" event were shown a presentation on heredity and how it can affect disease prevention, as well as minimize risks.

Following the presentation, there was a fashion show hosted by Dillard's at the Shops at Wiregrass featuring jeans. 10 News photojournalist Angela Clooney (pictured), who is a breast cancer survivor, took to the stage alongside other survivors.

People also had a chance to tour Florida Hospital's Breast Care Center and see its imaging technology.
