GENEius University Screening Week (GUSW) is a brand new initiative as part of Jnetics’ GENEius Programme. During GUSW, Jewish university students across the whole UK will be able to take part in life-saving carrier screening for 9 severe Jewish genetic disorders, AT HOME AND FOR FREE!! (real price if £300 per person!)  

 

Screening during GUSW will happen virtually, so it will be super easy take part. All you need is a phone, some saliva (it’s a spit test!), and a pen. The best thing is that you’ll barely need to get out of bed… apart from one quick trip to the closest post box!

 

See below for how GUSW screening will work and info about why screening is so important.
