Newborn Screening Awareness Month
Newborn Screening Awareness Month Wristbands
More than 50 years ago, Dr. Robert Guthrie and a colleague made the country aware that newborns could be tested and treated for diseases before they become potentially deadly. In the years since then, all states adopted procedures to screen newborns for at least 29 conditions while they are still in the hospital. Which is why September is known as Newborn Screening Awareness Month. During Newborn Screening Awareness Month, the goal is to raise awareness for the testing so that it can be improved and expanded on nationwide.
What Is Newborn Screening?
Within 48 hours of a child’s birth, the hospital administers a blood test that allows them to screen the baby for certain conditions, genetic disorders, and hearing ability, among other things. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, these tests find treatable conditions in one out of every 300 infants.
Use Wristbands for Newborn Screening Awareness Month
One way to help raise awareness is simply by creating customizable bracelets. These fun and fashionable bracelets can go a long way for Newborn Screening Awareness Month. They can come in any color—even blocked or swirled!—and they can have artwork and messages imprinted on the front or the back. For Newborn Screening Awareness Month, messages can include things like “Newborn screening saves lives” or “The first test is important.”
