    Baby's Feet

    Newborn screening identifies conditions which can affect a child’s long-term health or survival. Early detection, diagnosis, and intervention can prevent death or disability and enable children to reach their full potential. Each year, millions of babies in the U.S. are routinely screened for certain genetic, endocrine, and metabolic disorders, and are tested for hearing loss and critical congenital heart defects (CCHDs) prior to discharge from a hospital or birthing center.
