“Increasing Use and Impact of Family Health History in Medically Underserved Populations,” Webinar to be Moderated by G2MC’s Grant Wood
Family health history is a risk factor for many common chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. Knowing a patient’s family health history can aid in earlier diagnoses of genetic conditions, refine disease risk assessments, inform timing and type of preventive interventions, and motivate behavior change.
