Genetic Screening

One of the most important ways we can create a world without FD is through genetic screening. The discovery of the FD gene ushered in a new era of carrier testing.

 

Because the FD gene is passed down in a recessive manner, most people carrying the FD gene do not know it.

For more information on genetic screening and to obtain testing, please visit the Jewish Genetic Disease Consortium, as well as jscreen.org
