Inherited Health: Building Family Trees

More than a year ago, I wrote about AccessDNA which now changed focus and became Inherited Health. Jordanna Joaquina, MS, CGC; Director of Genetics and Co-Founder of Inherited Health shared what kind of changes they implemented into the site:

  • We have created an easy to use and secure tool that allows people and their biological relatives to collectively create and update their family health history together
  • We then analyze the family history information to create a Personal Health Guide, which identifies hereditary disease risks and provide actionable guidance about how to lower these risks for each family member
  • We also provide a Summary of the family health history that can be printed and shared with doctors and helps avoid repeatedly filling out health history forms at doctors office and improves the accuracy of the information provided because of collaborative family effort

  1. Knowing your family history can make a huge difference. Just the BRCA gene mutations which can be easily if expensively tested for can save lives, but if you don’t know your family history no one will think to test.
