My Family Health Portrait

Use this online tool from the U.S. Surgeon General to put together a health history report for your family. After following the interactive commands, you can save a personalized profile to your computer that can help you identify genetic risks, share that information with family members, preserve that information to pass on to your children, and maybe even skip some of those endless forms at the doctor's office. Not sure you want to share this much information with the government, even if it promises not to view the info and saves it all on your machine instead of an online database? You can download a version of the software to use offline, or print out a hard-copy version to fill out the old-fashioned way.
