Knowing risks today can lead to a healthier tomorrow

The Surgeon General’s My Family Health Portrait helps users organize family health history and then print it out to share with health care providers and family members.

Topics to ask close family members (those related by blood) about include:

• Birth defects and childhood health problems

• Any common adult diseases (heart disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer, arthritis)

• Age at death

• Cause of death

• Family ancestry

• Pregnancy complications or difficulties

• Mental health conditions
