Subject: Jewish Genetic Diseases Awareness and Screening Event

Maryland Hillel is excited to host the Jewish Genetic Diseases Awareness and
Screening Week! We wanted to share the many ways for you to get involved and
take charge of your future!
1.       Info Session: Monday December 1st at 7:30 PM in Hillel, Dr. David
Straney (of the Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics Department) is presenting
on what Jewish genetic diseases are, how they are inherited, and what you can
do to prevent or treat them. Refreshments will be served!

2.       Get Screened! On Thursday, December 4th from 3:00-7:00, come to
Maryland Hillel for an easy screening process with JScreen. For the highly
subsidized price of only $99, you just give them a small saliva sample at
JScreen will look at your DNA to see if you are a carrier of over 80 genetic
diseases. Physicians and genetic counselors will be onsite to answer any
questions. To make the process easier, you can pre-register at – make sure you select “Maryland Hillel” in response to
the question “How did you hear about us?”

3.       Volunteer to help out! Maryland Hillel needs volunteers for both of
these events, and it is a great way for you to join the community! Just send
an email to Shira Neuman at [log in to unmask]
