Increasing Use and Impact of Family Health History in Medically Underserved Populations

November 14, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Tune in to “Increasing Use and Impact of Family Health History in Medically Underserved Populations,” a free virtual event with Nadeem Qureshi, Kimberly Kaphingst, and Grant Wood on November 14, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET. This event is hosted by the Precision Public Health Network; the Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health, CDC Office of Science; and the National Family Health History Working Group.

Family health history is a risk factor for many common chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. Knowing a patient’s family health history can aid in earlier diagnoses of genetic conditions, refine disease risk assessments, inform timing and type of preventive interventions, and motivate behavior change. Despite years of public health work promoting its use, family health history remains underutilized in clinical care, especially among medically underserved populations. This webinar will focus on challenges, needs, and approaches to increasing the use and impact of family health history in medically underserved populations, both nationally and globally.
