Thanksgiving: Family Health History Day

    This is just a reminder that the Acting Surgeon General has declared Thanksgiving Day as Family History Day.   This is the fifth year for this declaration.  I've written a couple of times about how important I think a family heath history is.  By knowing your risk for certain diseases, you can make changes in your lifestyle to counteract some of the problems.   Below are a number of links to sites that will help you understand and create a medical pedigree for yourself and your children.

    Happy Thanksgiving.
