The goal of this site is to provide healthcare professionals and institutions nationwide with continuing medical education certified opportunities to ensure that every well newborn is accurately screened prior to discharge from the hospital.

Patient safety, patient satisfaction, nurse competency, and budget concerns at hospitals and heath systems were strong considerations when designing our newborn screening CE.

This site supports the mission of the Virginia Department of Health’s Newborn Screening Services to reduce and prevent disabilities and death resulting from disorders detectable through newborn screening and to provide for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up genetic services for families at risk.
