Eat Right. Excercise. Get Screened.
Thanks to Anshe Emet Synagogue, the Center will host their education and screening program on October 7. Did you know that with one simple, yet powerful, blood test, you can find out if you are a carrier for a Jewish genetic disorder? Knowledge is power- before you start a family, it is important to get tested!
Genetic counselors from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago will be available to address both general and personal questions. Hospital staff will take samples for screening. Program fee: $180 per person. Program includes dinner, an educational presentation and genetic screening for 19 Jewish genetic disorders. Contact Taryngluskin@juf.org to sign up!
Their will be another opportunity on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at Temple Sholom, 3480 N. Lake Shore Drive.
