There is a new tool, called “My Family Health Portrait,” that is a web-based program available for free. The tool will help you organize your family tree and help you identify common diseases that may run in your family line. You can show your portrait to your doctor and share it with family members.
It is a project of the U.S. Surgeon General’s Family History Initiative, and you can learn about it at http://www.hhs.gov/familyhistory.
