Empower your employees to reduce their risk for hereditary cancer.
Family history is a simple and effective way to determine hereditary cancer and disease risk.
Your employee’s health is not only influenced by their shared environment and lifestyle, but also by their genes. Family health history is critical and can reveal whether they’re at an increased risk for developing certain diseases, such as:
- Cancers – breast, ovarian, colon, pancreatic, prostate, melanoma, thyroid and others
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Alzheimer’s and dementia
- …and many others
Promote preventive care and reduce costs.
Helping your employees be more aware if they’re at increased risk for certain diseases will motivate them to take the necessary steps to lower their chance of getting the disease. Lifestyle changes, additional screenings, and genetic testing can be performed to minimize risks and catch health problems early, reducing your overall healthcare costs and more importantly, improving outcomes and saving lives.
Need clinical genetic services?
We’ve partnered with telegenetic companies that provide convenient access to board certified genetic counselors by phone/video (days, nights and weekends) for those employees who are at increased risk. These counselors will give them proper guidance to determine if further genetic testing is needed, to interpret the results, and to guide them in the best course of action moving forward.
The free FamGenix app can guide your employees in tracking family health history.
The app walks you through building your family and inputting health data for you and your family members. You can easily share data with relatives for a more accurate health history, and you’re always in control of your data. The app will then determine your level of risk based on established clinical criteria. Learn more about how the app works:
