JScreen, a national non-profit public health initiative dedicated to preventing Jewish genetic diseases, and CoronaCrush, a Facebook group with more than 10,000 followers, designed to help Jewish singles continue their search for love while quarantined at home, have partnered.
“We thought this is the perfect combination of helping people find their soulmate while caring about their future families,” said Hillary Kener Regelman, national director of outreach for JScreen.
In addition to the partnership, JScreen will sponsor a CoronaCrush King and Queen of the Week, a “coronation” for the woman and man who receive the most ‘likes’ in the group. The winners will each receive a JScreen swag bag. In addition, JScreen will give any couple who gets engaged from CoronaCrush a free screening kit.
“We started CoronaCrush because we wanted to provide our single friends with a fun and supportive environment to continue to meet and date,” said CoronaCrush co-founder Ian Mark. “We’re excited to partner with JScreen because they’re providing a very serious and crucial service to new couples and while our group is meant to be fun, we encourage all the dating in our group to be done in the framework of serious dating.”
JScreen is a national online genetic screening program based at Emory University School of Medicine’s Department of Human Genetics. JScreen is uniquely equipped, to provide at-home genetic testing and TeleHealth services during this time of social distancing.
