Did you know that each year since 2004, the Surgeon General has declared Thanksgiving to be National Family History Day?

Over the holiday season or at other times when families gather, the Surgeon General encourages Americans to talk about, and to write down, the health problems that seem to run in their family.  PHRs are a perfect tool in this regard.

Moreover, doctors speak about the FH with patients every day, and as they commence office work on this Black Friday. Of course, learning about a family’s health history may help ensure a longer, healthier future together too!
