What is University Screening Week

University screening week is a new campus-focused initiative from Jnetics. Its goal is to raise awareness of Jewish genetic disorders (JGDs) amongst Jewish university students, and provide them with free and convenient JGD carrier screening.

Getting Screened During University Screening Week

During University Screening Week, students are able to take part in free carrier screening for 47 of the most severe JGDs from the comfort of their own home. They can do this by booking a virtual appointment available during the following times:

Mon 22 Nov – 1700-2100
Tue 23 Nov – 1700-2100
Wed 24 Nov – 1300-1700
