    It is powered by a technology that analyzes hundreds of thousands of places in your DNA, including over 100 locations that give you insights into your health conditions and wellness. AncestryHealth® offers suggestions for next steps to help you take action for your health, such as talking with a healthcare provider to discuss getting an earlier health screening or connecting with a PWNHealth genetic counselor.

Once your order is approved by the physician network, you will receive the AncestryHealth® DNA kit in the mail in a matter of days. Your kit includes instructions for use, a saliva collection tube, and a pre-paid return mailer (so you don't have additional costs to return your DNA.) After returning your sample by just dropping it in the mail, your DNA is processed at a CLIA-certified laboratory that developed and performs the test-- usually within 8 weeks. Once the clinician network reviews and approves release of your reports, you'll receive an email notifying you that your results are ready to explore on the AncestryHealth® website.

You will also receive all features of AncestryDNA, including ethnicity results that reveal your origins.

    AncestryHealth® provides reports for selected conditions in the following general areas: Cancer Risk, Heart and Blood Health, Carrier Status and Wellness. Full list of reports included in AncestryHealth® Core listed here.

You can download a report that includes a laboratory report outlining your test results and a physician-friendly quick reference guide to take with you, if you choose, to a healthcare provider.
