Hadassah presents Our Heritage and Our Health

Free, but RSVP is mandatory for the lunch catered by Century Catering.

Learning about your heritage is a beginning. All around the world distinct ethnic groups have been identified as having increased risks for particular genetic diseases. In the Ashkenazi Jewish population, several such inherited diseases are known. These include Gaucher disease, cystic fibrosis, Canavan disease, Bloom syndrome and others. Gaucher disease is the most common Jewish genetic disorder. Among Ashkenazi Jews, 1 person in 15 is a carrier for this disease and 1 in 850 have Gaucher disease.

Learn more at this complimentary presentation by Gary S.Frohlich, MS, CGC senior patient education liaison.
