GENEuary 2022

WHAT IS GENEuary?

After a successful first year in January 2021, we are delighted to reintroduce “GENEuary” to you. GENEuary is a month-long awareness campaign in January designed to raise awareness of recessive Jewish genetic disorders and the importance of carrier screening. The previous campaign we ran in January 2021 allowed us to reach more couples and young adults who wouldn’t have otherwise considered screening.

As a result, we bring you GENEuary 2022, bigger and better than ever before!
