September is Newborn Screening Awareness Month

Newborn screening is one of the most successful public health initiatives in the United States. Nearly 4 million babies are born each year in the U.S. Every baby is tested for a list of diseases or conditions, based on each state’s panel of tests. These newborn screening tests enable early identification of conditions – which allows for the earliest possible intervention or treatment.
