Jewish Nevada Young Leaders will be hosting a genetic testing screening event with jSCREEN. JScreen is a not-for-profit at-home education and carrier screening program for Jewish genetic diseases. The goal of the program is to give individuals and families easy access to information and to allow testing to be done conveniently from home. Testing is performed by a certified laboratory and results are reviewed and reported to participants by genetic counselors. In some states, test results must be reviewed and reported by a specific healthcare provider, and if so, JScreen genetic counselors will work with the provider to ensure you receive your results and any needed follow-up in a timely manner.
