The U. S. Surgeon General has created an online tool called My Family Health portrait to help families gather medical information. Because many diseases have a genetic component, families can become more aware of the health risks they may face. The Surgeon General recommends learning the medical history of at least three generations. The tool they've developed has questions you should ask. The website assures complete privacy for participants.
