The Importance of Knowing Your Family Health History


This month is Black History Month.  While we want to celebrate the important people of African descent in our history, it also reminds us that knowing your own family health history is always a crucial part of our well being.

According to Examiner, African Americans are more likely to live with chronic conditions, and are also more likely to develop  cancer.  Understanding the family health history can give you insight to the type of risks you and your family are in, in addition being proactive about the types of preventative care you can take to ensure good health.

As a result, it is always important to know your family medical history, as well as keeping records of them just in case if a doctor does not have a piece of info anytime in the future.
