Happy National Family History Day

Rockwell-freedom from want

Since 2004 the Surgeon General has declared Thanksgiving to be National Family History Day.

SG and ME

Holiday family gathering are an opportune time to chat about what “runs in the family.” Knowing your family’s health history can help make future Thanksgivings possible.

Of course, more than just golden nuggets of health history are the treasures discovered in discourse with your family.  Time together is precious, fleeting, immediate and eternal. Cherish every moment this holiday.

In closing, I will share with you my all time favorite talk-with-your-loved-ones song –  “Living Years” by Mike and the Mechanics. If this doesn’t get you in the mood for a little heart to heart you are probably in a post-turkey-dinner-coma.

Happy Thanksgiving.
