Banking DNA is a major step to securing a healthy future for your family. The other important step is to keep a record of each family member's health, especially previous generations. The United State Surgeon General has declared each Thanksgiving Day as National Family Health History Day, and suggests that families talk about diseases that run in your family when you get together at Thanksgiving or any family gathering. PGDNABank has developed an easy to use workbook to assist you and your family with recording their family health history.
The Department of Health and Human Services has also developed a website to assist in recording your family’s health history electronically so that you can easily share this information with other family members.
