Family History Contributes To Your Health
Last updated 11/23/2020 at 4:49pm
November is a time when we traditionally reflect on gratitude for our many gifts, including the gift of family. As we approach Thanksgiving, which will be celebrated differently from any other time in our memory due to COVID-19, we may be sharing time with family, but not in person this year.
Our familial connections are more than just present-day relationships though. Our family medical history is something we should all be aware of and discuss with our family members and our physicians. In fact, November is also the month we recognize National Family Health History Day, on Nov. 26.
