Senior Toolkit for Family Health History

I have blogged about the importance of Family Health Histories before discussing that a Family Reunion is a perfect opportunity to gather and share your families health history. The Utah Department of Health has developed a Senior Friendly Toolkit for exploring and gathering you family's health history. If you have Adobe Reader click here to obtain a copy of the toolkit. Once you have viewed this link, you can save the toolkit to your computer by clicking on save a copy at the top of the PDF document.

If you would like to view two short videos regarding the importance of a Family Health History , click here to view a video about Health History and Cancer or
click here for a video about the importance of Health History and Diabetes. Both of these videos are links to Channel 2 News in Salt Lake City where a reporter is interviewing a person(s) regarding their experiences of obtaining a Family Health History and their personal health.
