Jewish Community



The Canavan Foundation reminds us that even during a time of shelter-in-place and social distancing, timely and complete screening for Jewish genetic diseases is vitally important for anyone of Jewish heritage planning to start or add to a family. Ideally, you should be screened prior to pregnancy. You can call your doctor to discuss screening, or go to JScreen to learn about at-home access to their screening service.  Attached is a digital brochure from the Jewish Genetic Disease Consortium, or you can visit their website for more information.
