1: Family Genetic History (60 points):
Develop a family genetic history that includes,at a minimum, three generations of your chosen adult’s family, including grandparents, parents, and the adult’s generation. If the adult has any children, include them as the fourth generation. **PLEASE NOTE: This assignment is to reveal the potential impact of the family’s health on the adult participant. You do not need to identify anyone who is not biologically related to the adult except for a spouse or significant other.
You do not need to use symbols, but instead write brief descriptions for each person. Each description should include the following information: first name, birthdate, death date, occupation, education, primary language, and a health summary, including any medical diagnoses. An example is below.
|Paternal grandfatherFirst and last initials:||RL|
|Occupation:||Retired as a coal miner|
|Health summary:||He was diagnosed with chronic lung disease, diabetes, and hypertension. He died from a heart attack.|
|Paternal grandmotherFirst and last initials:||ML|
|Education:||Does not want to disclose|
|Health summary:||Diagnosed with chronic lung disease from smoking cigarettes. Died from heart failure.|
This example points to common problems among this generation on both sides of the family. Consider the implications this would have for the adult participant’shealth if these were that person’s family members.
Complete the family genetic history form below. Indicate if any information is N/A (not applicable) or unknown. Indicate any information the person did not want to disclose by noting “Does not want to disclose.”
