National Public Health Week

It’s National Public Health Week! Did you know that the Health Services and Resources Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide grant funding for newborn hearing screening? These grants include state-based programs [http://www.infanthearing.org/states/index.html] as well as a technical resource center [http://www.infanthearing.org/index.html], a family support center [https://handsandvoices.org/fl3/index.html], a medical home initiative [https://www.aap.org/…/Early-Hearing-Detection-and-Intervent…], and training to pediatric audiologists [https://www.aucd.org/template/page.cfm?id=754].

Together, all these organizations comprise our nation’s EHDI System.

EHDI and Public Health Week

It’s National Public Health Week! Did you know that EHDI is a relatively new public health program? In 2002, congress passed legislation that provided funding to 2 national organizations to oversee EHDI—these organizations are the Health Services and Resources Administration (https://mchb.hrsa.gov/maternal-child-health-initiatives/early-hearing-detection-and-intervention.html) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/hearingloss/index.html).
