The GENEius Programme is a pioneering education and screening initiative delivered by Jnetics. It is designed to eliminate severe recessive Jewish genetic disorders (JGDs) from the UK Jewish community. GENEius focuses on young Jewish adults in 3 main groups; sixth form students, university students, and couples going through the synagogue pre-marriage process.
The programme informs young Jewish adults about the significance of JGDs and the value of carrier screening. It provides access to responsible and affordable screening, enabling participants to identify whether or not they are carriers of one or more recessive JGD.
Armed with the knowledge of their carrier status, young adults can then make informed choices to help avoid the risk of passing on one of the severe recessive JGDs to their future children.
Take control of your future by learning about your Jewish genetic makeup.
