On Monday November 11th, JScreen, a national non-profit public health initiative dedicated to preventing Jewish genetic diseases, partnered with NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Maimonides Society to offer genetic screenings and information about the genetic screening process. JScreen gives individuals and couples important information to help them plan ahead for the health of their future children.
Testing is performed by a certified laboratory and results are reviewed and reported to participants by genetic counselors. The screening panel includes Tay-Sachs, Cystic Fibrosis, and over 200 other genetic diseases.

JScreen is a national non-profit public health initiative dedicated to preventing Jewish genetic diseases.  Headquartered in Atlanta at Emory University School of Medicine, the JScreen initiative provides convenient at-home access to cutting-edge genetic testing technology, patient education and genetic counseling services.  JScreen believes the combination of education, access to premier gene screening technologies and personalized, confidential support are the keys to preventing these devastating diseases.
