The Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga will be offering free genetic screening Sunday, Feb. 21 from 1-4 p.m. at the Jewish Cultural Center, located at 5461 North Terrace Road.
The informational slide show, opportunity to speak with a genetic educator, and the genetic screening are free with a valid insurance card regardless of whether or not insurance covers the test.
There are two types of tests. The first is a mouth swab test for common diseases. If you have a family history of breast cancer, a BRCA blood test will also be available.
Confidential test results and follow-up are part of the screening process.
This opportunity is available to everyone in the community. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
