Tay-Sachs Screening Turnout Low, Doctor Says Keogh to Discuss Tax-Sheltered

30th ANNUAL

Poor weather, lack of com-
munity awareness and little
motivation were some of the
reasons cited for the low turn-
out at the second Tay-Sachs

Weiss, director of the Tay-
Sachs screening program,
"About 30,000 young people
in the Detroit area should
take this test.
"So far we only had ap-
proximately 2,000 young men
and women screened. Unfor-
tunately, the majority of the
community does not under-
stand the seriousness of the
disease."
To encourage more persons
to take the simple blood test,
Dr. Weiss plans to intiate a
campaign to educate more
people about Tay-Sachs dis-
ease. One segment of the
program involves having
speakers sent to various
Jewish organizations in the
community.
Dr. Weiss explained, "A
positive solution exists, even
of the husband and wife are
found to be carriers of the

disease. They can still possi-
bly have normal children,
since the chance of Tay-Sachs
afflicting the offspring is only
one out of four.
"When a carrier is detect-
ed during the screening pro-
gram, I personally consult
with the individual. The case
is analyzed individually."
After taking the test, Jerry
Leventhal of Huntington
Woods, commented, "I al-
ready have two children and
my family is very health con-
scious. I want to make sure
that my children are not car-
riers in their generation."
Barry Glaser of Southfield
commented, "I wanted to
take the test because my
fiance and I are concerned
about future children."
Tay-Sachs disease is a fa-
tal, inherited neurological
disorder which afflicts the
offspring of Jews of Eastern
and Central European de-
scent.
The screening program is a
join undertaking of Sinai Hos-
pital of Detroit and the gene-
tic counseling clinic of Henry
Ford Hospital, under the
sponsorship of the Jewish
Welfare Federation and the
March of Dimes, which pro-
vide funds for the program.

Computerized typesetting
