Free genetic screening

Sunday, Feb. 21 from 1-4 p.m.

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 nxgenscreening@gmail.com.
