The Victor Center for the Prevention of Jewish Genetic Diseases at Tufts Medical Center was established at the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center through a generous philanthropic gift from Lois Victor, in partnership with the Einstein Healthcare Network of Philadelphia, PA.
The Victor Program was founded to provide education, outreach and screening for the prevention of devastating genetic diseases carried at increased frequencies among members of the Ashkenazi Jewish population. The program provides education in the community and at college and graduate school campuses, where screening drives promote awareness and provide testing for Jewish students.
The Victor Center Boston hosts screenings throughout the year. Please check out our calendar for information.
If you would like to get involved in planning an awareness and screening program at your synagogue, college campus or community organization, please contact Jodi Hoffman, MD at 617.636.7721.
