family history

At the next family gathering, when you have many of your relatives all in one place, do a little health history digging. Knowing your family medical history is vital in understanding your risk factors, and it can help your doctor develop strategies to keep you healthy. Get started by creating a family health tree with this online tool, then have your family help fill in the holes at your next get-together. An added bonus of asking about family history is discovering stories that you've never heard. Be sure to write them down, and if you're a scrapbooker, add them to your family history scrapbook
