Mission Statement

Over the last 30 years, screening tests for carriers have been developed for many of the identified Jewish genetic disorders.  Unfortunately, community-based education efforts have not paralleled scientific advances.

The Chicago Center for Jewish Genetic Disorders is a critical effort to provide public and professional education and to empower community members to seek out information and prevention strategies.  With its current set of sponsors, the Center represents the blending of science with religious, cultural and historical sensitivity and awareness.  The Center seeks to become the voice that translates laboratory discoveries into accessible information for the Jewish community at risk as well as for physicians and other health care providers.

Our Goals:

Community Education and Awareness

Professional Education

Screening and Prevention Programs

Information and Referral Advocacy
