Newborn screening (NBS) reduces infant morbidity and mortality by initiating early detection, treatment, and management of newborns with congenital disorders. Unfortunately, only about one third of infants around the world receive screening at birth, leading to significantly increased risk of disease during childhood and/or adulthood. The IFCC has made NBS a major focus of its strategic plans and presents this LIVE webinar where three world-renowned speakers will present on the state of newborn screening around the world including: Prof. Piero Rinaldo (USA), Prof. Jim Bonham (UK), and Prof. Pranesh Chakraborty (Canada). We invite all scientists, physicians, laboratory professional, corporate representatives and young scientists/trainees to join us in this important event which will be presented LIVE around the world. The webinar will conclude with a panel discussion. The webinar recording will be available for those unable to attend on the live date. Please ensure you register to attend the live event and have access to the recording.
