There is much to be thankful for during this time of year, but your health ranks up there pretty high on the list.

As we celebrate the nation’s 10th annual Family Health History Day this Thanksgiving, the Surgeon General, Boris Lushniak, encourages everyone to spend time talking with their family members about their health. National Family Health History Day is a great opportunity to draw attention to the importance of sharing family health history. 

All it takes is a few minutes and the investment you’ll be making in the future of your health and your family’s health is immeasurable. Build your family health portrait online now!
