Sephardi & Mizrahi Diseases

The Sephardic and Mizrahi Jewish populations are more genetically diverse than the Ashkenazi population. Because of this, there is no Sephardi or Mizrahi genetic testing “panel” as there is in the Ashkenazi population.  A consultation with a genetic counselor is recommended for anyone of Sephardi, Mizrahi, or mixed ancestry since there are expanded carrier screening panels that may be appropriate for such individuals.

Due to the nature of genetic testing, specific testing for Sephardi and Mizrahi Jewish populations may cost more than $99.
