JScreen FAQs: Questions About Genetic Testing
JScreen also screens all women for Fragile X syndrome. (For more information see questions below.)
If you and your partner are considering screening, but only want one person to be screened, we suggest women have the screening done so they can be tested for Fragile X.
The JScreen staff can send a representative to give a presentation at an event or meeting in your community. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about organizing an event in your area.
