In 2004, the Surgeon General declared as Thanksgiving as a Family Health History Day. The idea is that when everyone in your family is already together, to discuss the family health history and risks or concerns. Having your family health history well documented can help prevent illness and is very useful for your medical professionals!
How to observe National Family Health History Day:
- Draw a genealogy tree.
- Put together a binder of family health history
- Assign everyone to write down any health concerns to share.
