What's in Your Genes?
Sponsor Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta
Type of Event Education
Description One in five Jews is at risk for carrying one of 19 disease genes that could potentially impact the health of their children. These genes are not restricted to the Jewish population, and thus interfaith couples are at risk as well. Karen Grinzaid, genetic counselor for the Atlanta Jewish Gene Screen, will talk about what may be in your genes and how to get tested to prevent these devastating diseases in your children. Randy Gold, founder of The Atlanta Jewish Gene Screen and father of Eden, the impetus for this organization, will tell his personal story as well. The program will conclude with a question and answer session. Free and open to the community, but please reserve a spot!
