Newborn screening is mandated by each individual state, so tests required in some states may not be required in others. Today’s live webcast of Public Health Grand Rounds discusses how some states have implemented point-of-care newborn screening and the challenges they have faced. Join us at 1:00 pm ET and use the hashtag #CDCGrandRounds on Twitter to ask questions during the event. http://1.usa.gov/1rzB4JL
