  1. Evaluation of family genetic history

Evaluate the impact of the family’s genetic history on your adult participant’s health. For example, if the adult participant’s mother and both sisters have depression, hypertension, or cancer, what might that mean for the adult participant’s future health?

  1. Planning for health maintenance/promotion

Plan changes based on the evaluation of the adult participant’s family’s health history that will promote an optimal level of health now and to promote health in the future. Provide evidence for health promotion activities (consider Healthy People 2030 goals, health.gov and other types of evidence)  Include what information you would provide to the adult participant regarding the results of the family genetic history.
