Consumer Task Force on Newborn Screening
The Consumer Task Force on Newborn Screening was created to engage relevant stakeholders with an interest in newborn screening policies, activities, and current events. Members are chosen to serve for a one year program. The three components of this program are training, project development, and project execution. Members of the Task Force will be trained on issues relevant to newborn screening and will create projects targeting groups who typically are under-informed about the importance of newborn screening. After serving on the Task Force, members will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to continue work on newborn screening programs or other maternal and child health-related issues.
