Treasured Memories

''We each have personal recollections of past events, personal memories, and vivid, imaginative accounts of the events of our lives. These memories create a springboard for the stories that will provide us a precious link to our past.''

''Speaking is our primary way to communicate a powerful narrative. However, communication does not stop with the spoken word. All cultures have told stories enhancing them with body language, food, dance, art, music, storytelling, drama, crafts, literature and religious rites.''

''Storytelling reflects the rich cultural and religious heritage of the generations before us, and it leads us to understand how our past has influenced our present.'' - PBS skip

Inherited Genetic Diseases

''Many diseases, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, can run in families - knowing your family health history can save your life, as well as the lives of those you love.'' - Acting Surgeon General Kenneth Moritsugu skip
