How to Sign up for My Health
Family Health History
Although most individuals believe that knowing their family history is important to their personal health, the majority never collect, record, or share this information. To encourage this process, the Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy and LIVE FOR LIFE have teamed up to increase awareness of family history.
- A Guide to Family Health History provides you the tools to collect your family health history. Several Duke employees have shared their own health stories and why they believe knowing family health history is so important.
- A Guide for Understanding Genetics and Health provides information to help you better understand the role genetics plays in your health. There are brief descriptions about some common conditions and information about resources here at Duke.
