People dream of what their babies may become. Doctor… lawyer… but first things first: a healthy baby.
Through early genetic testing, parents can find out if their future children are at risk for life-threatening genetic disorders. JScreen at Emory University is a public health initiative dedicated to preventing Jewish genetic diseases through carrier screening.
With JScreen’s reliable at-home saliva test, a couple can find out if their future children are at risk for more than 200 genetic conditions, including some that are more common in the Ashkenazi, Sephardic, or Mizrahi Jewish populations. The results are provided by licensed genetic counselors via telephone or video conferencing.
