analyze family genetic health risks

This assessment requires you to complete a Genetic/Genomic Nursing Assessment using the information found in your text on page 224, Box 8-7. You DO NOT need to create a family tree. Rather, write out your assignment in APA format and address the items from the Nursing Assessment box 8-7.

Your paper should include the following information:

      1. Identify three generations of one family (male/female, age, role in the family such as son/daughter, father, mother, grandmother, grandfather). You may use grandparents, parents, and children. Be sure to find a family with children.
      2. Brief health history of each family member (for example what health problems has each member encountered in his/her lifetime). Focus on any/all genetic diseases that may be present or those for which family members may be at risk.
