Newborn screening turns 50!  The Association of Public Health Laboratories celebrated the 50th anniversary of newborn screening with organizations such as NCC, NBSTRN, Baby's First Test on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.  Through the combined effort of physicians, genetic counselors, parents, and advocacy organizations more than 12,000 lives a year are saved with newborn screening.  NCC was proud to be apart of the momentous celebration and looks forward to broadening the reach of newborn screening in the coming years.
