CDC Family Health History Webpage
Thanksgiving is National Family History Day. Knowing and acting on your family health history is an important way to protect your health. This webpage provides resources to start a conversation with family members that can be shared with  health care providers to assist with identifying potential inherited disease.  Your doctor can use it to develop a more complete picture of your health and your risk factors for disease.
