Norton & Elaine Sarnoff Center for Jewish Genetics *
The Norton & Elaine Sarnoff Center for Jewish Genetics offers programming and education related to genetic disorders and hereditary cancers common in the Jewish community. For Jewish and interfaith couples in Illinois, the Center partners with a medical provider to offer a convenient, affordable option to receive carrier screening for Tay Sachs disease, Gaucher disease, Canavan disease, and more than 80 other Jewish and pan-ethnic disorders. Most participants can complete the program from the comfort of their own home by providing a saliva sample, with no blood draw required.
