I hope that all of you who attended the Western States Joint Conference (WSJC) absorbed as many lectures and workshops that you could throughout the week; the lineup of speakers were incredible.The combined efforts from all involved individuals were unrelenting, and I sincerely hope that your experiences as attendees have encouraged each one of you to continue to attend future seminars.One in every 25 Jews of Eastern European descent carries the gene for Tay-Sachs, a disease that kills its victims within five years of birth.Being a carrier cannot affect future generations unless both parents are carriers of the same genetic disease.But nothing is certain, and we decided that it was a risk we could not take.The life that I was so eager to begin had been denied me. Sometimes life just happens and we cannot control it. Being a carrier for a genetic disease is not uncommon; one in 20 Caucasians carries the gene for cystic fibrosis.I was naive and thought that there would never be a problem with our test results.After all, there was never a problem with other men I had previously dated.
Should you be a carrier, check the other person's status as soon as possible in a relationship.
Gene Partner has developed a formula to match men and women for a romantic relationship based on their genes.
Gene Partner’s biological matching method is designed as a complementary service for matchmakers and online dating sites.
For those who attended the WSJC, you were able to enjoy the Guidebook, a smartphone app allowing you to view the schedule and plan your day accordingly, without having to flip from page-to-page highlighting times and locations of the lectures/workshops that you would like to attend.
Needless to say, I am excited to see this Association continue to grow, and thrive, as we progress with the times.
