Summer is family health history time

At your next family reunion, www.rightathome.net suggests taking some time to talk about your family’s health. The seniors’ advisory agency recommends compiling and sharing a written health history document.

The free online “Family Health Portrait” tool at www.hhs.gov/familyhistory will help.

Ask senior family members about their parents’ and grandparents’ health. Knowing what health conditions may run in a family can motivate members to reduce their personal risks. Family health history also helps doctors diagnose and treat diseases when they can be identified early on.
