Date: September 09, 2021 1:00 pm EDT

In 2011, Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD) screening was added to the U.S. Recommended Uniform Screening Panel. Since then, all 50 states have passed laws or established newborn screening programs, making CCHD screening the standard of care in the U.S. This webinar provides an opportunity to review U.S. newborn screening program CCHD activities, the variation in implementation of newborn screening across the U.S. and discuss future needs as they relate to data infrastructure, linkages and collection, as well as educational opportunities for families and primary care physicians.
