This presentation will consider how understanding inheritance of health conditions offers opportunities for wellness for you and your family. All families pass on health vulnerabilities, some are genetic, and some are not. A family medical genealogy can help determine the family risk factors. Advances in genetics offer new perspectives on health and tools to manage health risks. Understanding your risk can help you to ensure you talk with your provider about cancer screenings that are right for you.
