(July 24, 2020) – Very soon, the Kansas Newborn Screening Program will launch the first Annual Kansas Newborn Screening Facility Recognitions to celebrate our state's collective success in improving NBS performance metrics over the course of 2019. In partnership with the Metabolic Screening Advisory Council, the Kansas Hospital Association, Kansas Midwives Association and Kansas Department of Health and Environment will recognize facilities and midwives across the state who demonstrated consistent effort to meet state goals for CCHD, as well as hearing and metabolic screenings in 2019. We are excited to share more details and the official results soon, so stay tuned!
The Kansas Newborn Screening Program has just released their newsletter for July. It can be viewed online.
