Give the gift of genetic carrier screening
Genetic carrier screening can be done with either a simple blood or saliva test, which can screen for more than 80 conditions, including those on the Jewish panel, as well as diseases that are common in the general population.
Testing can be done through a primary care doctor, an OB/GYN, or a genetic counselor.
