The GENEius Programme has had another great year with more students screened than ever before over 2018-2019!
An amazing 635 students have been screened this year from Immanuel, Hasmonean Girls and Boys, JFS, KDHS, Yavneh, JCoss and Birmingham University. This year was a huge success for the programme and we could not have done it without the hard work of our amazing volunteer screening team who have helped as screening advisers, with social media and with running the exit and feedback collation. We are so grateful for their time and enthusiasm!
We look forward to revisiting these schools in the next academic year, as well as two new universities. We are committed to providing students with more important knowledge about their genetic makeup and whether they are a carrier for Jewish genetic disorders. In this case, the test is positive no matter what the results.
