Educational Video

National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association of Delaware Valley (NTSAD-DV) has developed a new video to help educate the community about Tay-Sachs and Canavan disease. “Knowledge is Power – Check out your gene pool” is an 11 minute video featuring interviews with a physician, genetic counselor and 2 families directly affected by Tay-Sachs and Canavan.

We believe this video is appropriate for teenagers through adult viewers. We highly recommend it for individual classes studying genetics. Both diseases are explained in terms easily understood by a lay person. The concepts of how these diseases are inherited and prevention are outlined in easy to understand language.

NTSAD-DV is offering this video to schools free of charge. If you would like to reserve a copy, please email Rebecca at

Education is one of our primary goals. We are happy to assist you in every way so that you are comfortable presenting a lesson on Tay-Sachs and Canavan. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 215-887-0877 or with any questions or suggestions, or to inquire about our Speakers Bureau.
