- The U.S. Surgeon General’s Family History Initiative
For the past four years the Surgeon General has designated Thanksgiving, a time when families naturally gather together, as National Family History Day. You can use the online tool “My Health Portrait” to help guide you in collecting your own family’s health history. (Also available in Chinese, Polish, Spanish, French and Portuguese from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital National Family Health Initiative Website.)
- The Genetic Alliance
Links to sites that can help with collecting a family health history, including resources for family reunion organizers who want to incorporate this into their next gathering.
Mom, get ready for some questions.
