Program for Jewish Genetic Health

The Program for Jewish Genetic Health was established to help protect the health of the Jewish community and its future generations. The Program accomplishes this primarily through its carrier screening programs to test for the three Ashkenazi Jewish BRCA founder gene mutations and the Jewish genetic diseases that affect offspring (e.g., Tay-Sachs disease), its live and online educational programming focused on myriad Jewish genetic health issues – including its BRCAcommunity.com and MyJewishGeneticHealth.com platforms – and its resource and support center for the Jewish lay community and its leadership.
