Welcome to the website for the Tay Sachs Disease and Related Conditions Screening Program.
The Tay Sachs Disease and Related Conditions Screening Program is a genetic screening program that is funded by the generous donations from the Gandel Philanthropy, Pratt Foundation, The Finkel Foundation, The Besen Foundation and other anonymous donors.
We provide genetic counselling and genetic testing for genetic conditions that are common amongst people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry.
Community genetic screening sessions are held twice each year to provide an opportunity for members of the community to undergo genetic testing at a reduced fee.
The next community genetic screening session is:
Tuesday November 13th 2018
6.00pm - 7.30pm
Beth Weizmann Jewish Community Centre
306 Hawthorn Rd
