Chat with Dr. Benjamin, U.S. Surgeon General

surgeon-generalJoin us on Twitter for a chat with U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Regina Benjamin, on TUES 11/20 at 1pm ET. We’ll be talking about how completing a family health history can help give babies a healthy start in life.  National Family History Day is part of the Surgeon General’s Family Health History Initiative. 

Understanding your family health history is important for everyone, but it’s especially important for pregnant women, new moms or couples thinking about starting a family.  Knowing both parents’ family health histories can help identify risk for genetic conditions, birth defects, or preterm birth.
