The Victor Center

  • Victor Center Philadelphia

    Einstein Healthcare Network’s Victor Center for Jewish Genetic Diseases raises awareness of Jewish genetic diseases and provides affordable genetic counseling and screening for healthy individuals at risk of being carriers. Carrier screening is very important because one of five Ashkenazi Jews is a carrier of a mutation of one of these Jewish genetic diseases. The Victor Center educates the community to the importance of screening through Jewish community education programs and college campus outreach. Visit the Victor Center website for detailed information on the screening process, Jewish genetic diseases, and Victor Center programs in Philadelphia, Miami, and Boston.

    If you are interested in getting screened at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, organizing a community screening, or coordinating an educational program, contact our Outreach Coordinator at 215-456-8722.
