Jill Tucker, RN says:

“A timely reminder ’round now is that your family health history is a guide to your own health. While you are gathered with your family this Thanksgiving, following the small talk about weather and football, it might be a good time to discuss your family health history. What “runs in the family” is an effective tool to help to prepare for your own potential health issues.”
