We're all aware how diet, exercise and stress reduction can help us live better and longer lives.
But knowing your family health and medical history can have a major impact on staying healthy for both you and your family. It's also a great time to check on your parents or grandparents aging health.
 
 
On Wednesday, join Deena Centofanti and experts from Beaumont Health System as they discuss the importance of family health history and genetics.
 
The Experts:
 
Christine Chelladurai, DO | Beaumont Health Geriatrician 
Julie Zenger Hain, PhD, FACMG | Director, Cytogenetics | Beaumont Health
 
The holidays are just around the corner and many of us will be visiting family.
 
It's the perfect opportunity to start asking others about illnesses and diseases that your grandparents, aunts, uncles or cousins have experienced.
 
Once you collect that important information you can plug it into a tool from the Surgeon General to create a Family Health Portrait. 
 
You can also look for your signs to see if your parents may need some help.
