Summertime and Family Reunion Fun! Perfect Time to Gather Family Health History

As a follow-up to the Family Health History, I know that a large number of families have family reunions during the pleasant warm days of summer. You might consider this a perfect time for gathering a Family Health History. The Genomics Program that is directed by the Utah State Public Health Department has put together a Family Health History Toolkit that is available for download in a Adobe PDF format. The Toolkit provides you with information about genetic diseases and tendencies that are commonly passed through generations. This PDF download also includes how and where to search for genealogical records that may help you determine the death of your ancestors which will assist you in completing your Family Health History. To obtain the PDF Family Health History Toolkit, please click here.
