Description: In this concluding webcast, DNA Memorial will help IFDF members understand DNA preservation and the importance of indefinite storage and provide an overview of retrieval methods, testing applications related to genealogy and health care, and help us connect the dots with a case study about a Funeral Home client-family and their journey with carcinoma.

We inherit wonderful things from our loved ones. Crystal blue eyes or a curly head of hair. Intelligence, athleticism, and so much more. But we inherit weaknesses as well, including increased risks for hundreds of serious health problems. DNA can be used to make genealogical connections across thousands of years. Deceased loved one’s DNA possess a rich repository of useful, transformative and potentially life saving information for current family members, and descendants to come. For the first time, client families have access to profound medical and genealogical knowledge.

Genetic decoding is leading to a tsunami of information in medicine and ancestry and progressive Funeral Homes connect the dots, staying one step ahead.
