Newborn Screening Awareness Month

Recurring event see all

September 1, 2024 September 30, 2024 CDT

Newborn Screening Awareness Month is observed in September.

Newborn Screening Awareness Month raises awareness that newborn screening is a public health program that tests spots of blood from all newborns for certain conditions that are not noticeable at the time of birth, but that can cause serious disability or even death if not treated quickly. Infants with these conditions may seem perfectly healthy and frequently come from families with no previous history of a condition.
