Engaging Families and Health Professionals in Newborn Screening
Each year, 12,000 babies with serious but treatable conditions grow up healthy, thanks to newborn screening. Whether you’re a health professional or an expecting parent, it is important to know the facts about your baby’s first test.
This presentation provides a background on newborn screening, discusses the importance of education and engagement throughout the newborn screening experience, and shares available resources for both families and health professionals. Ms. Jackie Seisman, from Genetic Alliance, also provides an update on educational and awareness efforts from Baby’s First Test, the nation’s clearinghouse for newborn screening information.
