Construct a personal family health genogram.

Names, gender, ages, and health conditions of each family member. If deceased, indicate.

A thorough legend explaining any symbols used, including relationships.
Must be visually appealing/easy to read and follow.
Must be uploaded as a pdf, jpeg, or word document, only.
