2022 Wisconsin Newborn Screening (NBS) Program: An Introduction

Did you know? Not all parent/guardians are notified of their infants' NBS results and/or needed referrals that were made/completed. This puts infants at risk. This activity is intended for pediatric clinicians who wish to improve their understanding of the NBS process, NBS rates, communication of NBS results with parent/guardians and making appropriate referrals. This activity was created by geneticists, genetic counselors, pediatricians, public health representatives and parents.
