Thanksgiving Day and Family Health History Day
Thanksgiving Day is also Family Health History Day. Since 2004, the Surgeon General has encouraged Americans to talk about, and to write down, the health problems that seem to run in their family. Learning about their family’s health history may help ensure a longer, healthier future together.
