Newborn Screening Newsletter


The Ohio Newborn Screening Program sends out newsletters periodically to all birth hospital coordinators and sometimes to primary care physicians in Ohio.

Please share the information provided with your staff, IT staff and others who assist you in the newborn screening work. We have archived the recent newsletters for your convenience.
