About Us Newborn Screening Awareness Month

September is Newborn Screening Awareness Month! Every September, Baby's First Test shares newborn screening facts, videos and stories to help raise awareness of newborn screening among new and expecting parents, healthcare professionals, and the public! Whether your mission for September is to learn more about newborn screening or to share your experience with newborn screening, we hope our materials and resources are useful to you in your awareness efforts. 

This year for Newborn Screening Awareness Month,  we are hosting the inaugural Generating Real Action by Cultivating Engagement (GRACE) Award, the first award of its kind to recognize a team approach to family and community engagement in newborn screening. We are excited to spotlight programs or initiatives that engage families and communities in newborn screening with grace and authenticity, so that family needs are met and that lessons learned are integrated into future strategies.
