Brief health history of each family member (for example what health problems has each member encountered in his/her lifetime). Focus on any/all genetic diseases that may be present or those for which family members may be at risk.
Complete a reproduction history for relevant above identified family members
Describe the ethnic backgrounds of family member
Identify any growth and development variations of each member
