JScreen Makes Positive Impact Through Genetic Testing and Counseling

November 23, 2022


At JScreen, we believe that a combination of education, access to state-of-the-art testing technology, and personalized support by qualified medical professionals are key to preventing devastating genetic diseases and helping people live healthier lives. As the only national non-profit program offering genetic testing and counseling, we help fulfill that mission every single day.


Tens of thousands of couples throughout the country have relied on our comprehensive reproductive genetic testing services to help them make informed decisions when family planning. Since expanding into the cancer genetic testing space in 2020, we have helped thousands of individuals learn about their genetic risk for cancer, so they can go on to live longer, healthy lives. 


Here is what some of those individuals had to say about how JScreen has impacted them:


“Thank you for saving lives and for giving people the chance and information needed to help plan ahead! (Just one anecdote out of many: My best friend has an extremely mild form of a genetic disorder- so mild she didn’t even know until she got tested!- and, also thanks to JScreen, her now-husband found out that he is a carrier of the same disorder, so now they know the steps they need to take when they’re ready for kids!)”


“I would absolutely recommend it (and actually already have). The process was fairly easy and everything was well-explained. I felt my specific family concerns were definitely addressed. The screening is very thorough. I was very surprised by how quickly my results came back. The explanation of my results was easy to understand and I was able to access it myself without having to wait for my doctor to review it first.”


Here is what people had to say when asked “would you recommend JScreen?”: 


“Yes! Process was easy and everyone was kind and helpful. This is a wonderful service that everyone should take advantage of.”


“1000% yes! The process was quick and seamless.”
