National Newborn Screening Week

Newborn Screening is a public health intervention that involves a simple blood test used to identify many life threatening genetic illnesses before any symptoms begin.
Newborn hearing screening is likely the most important public health initiative to ever occur within the field of hearing health.
Prerequisites for being a parent include assuming responsibilities for inevitable uncertainties with children, accepting that they may develop to be diametrically opposed to what was initially envisioned.
