The LGBT Family Health History Initiative Has Tools and Information to Help You on the Journey to Future Health
Common diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes can run in families. Your personal health is not only influenced by your environment and lifestyle, but also by your family health history. You may wonder:
Will my relative’s health condition affect my future health?
What should I look for in my family health history?
How will my child’s health be affected by the medical history of their biological parent(s)?
Our website contains tools and resources specifically for LGBT families to increase understanding of how family health history affects health, and to help individuals gather family history information. It is our goal that through increased awareness and access to information, you and your family may begin the journey to discussing a personalized wellness plan with your medical providers.
