Our Mission

1 in 2 Jews Is at Risk of Being a Carrier for Preventable Jewish Genetic Diseases

The mission of Einstein's Prevention of Jewish Genetic Diseases program is to prevent life-threatening genetic diseases through preconception genetic screening, education, and counseling of individuals and couples with ANY Jewish ancestry. The aim of our advocacy, partnerships and outreach is to expand access to services, to promote screening and counseling as standard practice among healthcare providers, and to educate adults of childbearing age.

Donate today to support outreach programs at the Prevention of Jewish Genetic Diseases program.

Take Control of your Future Today

Get screened, safely, for preventable Jewish genetic diseases by emailing preventJGD@jefferson.edu or calling 1.800.EINSTEIN.

Einstein’s determination to care for our community and staff continues as your counseling and screening can be done safely through your telephone, smartphone, or computer in the comfort of your own home. We partner with genomic labs and have referred patients for virtual genetic counseling since 2018.
