Main Line Fertility to Host Jewish Genetic Screening Day
Main Line Fertility is hosting a “Jewish Genetic Screening Day” on Sunday, Feb. 23 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., for Jewish women of reproductive age (18-44) and their partners to determine if they are carriers of an inherited disorder (i.e. Tay Sachs, etc).
The screening involves having blood drawn by either a phlebotomist or nurse in the office. Results can be expected in approximately one month. Genetic counselors are available for phone consultation, at no cost to the patient, should a positive screening result occur.
All insurance plans accepted (except Medicaid and Medicare). Any out of pocket insurance costs are being covered by a private donor.
To register, please send an email to [email protected] . Main Line Fertilty is located at: 825 Old Lancaster Road, Suite 170, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
