Jewish Genetic Disease Consortium

 

SUMMARY

 

The Jewish Genetic Disease Consortium (JGDC) increases awareness about Jewish genetic diseases and encourages timely and appropriate carrier screening for all persons who have any Jewish ancestry, as well as couples of mixed heritage. The JGDC is an alliance of non-profit organizations sharing the common goal of combating genetic diseases. While each JGDC member organization has its own individual mission, the JGDC unites these organizations to jointly strengthen public education and awareness about appropriate carrier screening.
