Report on JAK2 community screening in Pennsylvania

In 2008 this tri-county area was found to have a higher than average prevalence of Polycythemia Vera. The response has been a multi-disciplinary effort to examine the situation. This report includes the process and results of a free, voluntary JAK2 screening for residents offered by ATSDR.
