It was a pleasure working with our friends at Jnetics for the Jewish Genetics Awareness Month 2021.

‘GENEuary’ is a brand new month-long awareness campaign, designed to raise awareness of recessive Jewish genetic disorders and the importance of carrier screening in their prevention.

One in five Jews of Ashkenazi origin are thought to be healthy carriers of a severe recessive JGD, and carrier screening identifies those at risk of passing one or more of these disorders on to their future children.
