JScreen Genetic Testing

A generous grant from NextGen-Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta gives those ages 18-45 living in the Atlanta metro area the ability to get tested for only $74, with insurance, by using the code NextGenATL at the JScreen.org checkout page. This testing is valued at over $1000 and can keep our future generations healthy.

Testing is simple, convenient, and done at-home on a saliva sample! The test is for a panel of over 200 genetic diseases, including those most common in people with Ashkenazi, Sephardi, and Mizrahi backgrounds. Follow-up genetic counseling is provided via telehealth to discuss the test results. Anyone considering starting or expanding their family should consider genetic screening.

Breaking News! JScreen is thrilled to announce our newest testing option, CancerGEN. This state-of-the-art test analyzes the BRCA genes and over 60 other cancer-susceptibility genes to determine genetic risk for breast, ovarian, prostate, colorectal, skin and many other types of cancer.
