My Family Health Portrait Tool

My Family Health is a Web-based tool designed to help you organize family history information that you can print and share with your health care provider.

 The tool allows you to:

  • Enter your family health history
  • Learn about your risk for conditions that can run in families
  • Print your family health history to share with family or your health care provider
  • Save your family health history so you can update it over time

Want to get started? Access the My Family Health Portrait Web tool at https://familyhistory.hhs.gov/.

Why is understanding your family health portrait so important? Because it can show you a picture of your family's generations and the health disorders that may have moved from one generation to the next. That is a powerful tool for you and you’re your health care provider to have when predicting diseases you may be at risk for.

A PDF version of the tool is also available in English and Spanish if you prefer to gather and record your family history by hand.
