Michigan's 50th Anniversary of Newborn ScreeningNewborn Screening word cloud
 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Michigan Newborn Screening Program (NBS). Throughout the year, we will be highlighting program milestones and recognizing the state's NBS pioneers. Since 1965, the screening panel has expanded from one to 54 disorders -- all of which require early treatment to prevent illness, disability or death. This expansion over the last 50 years would not have been possible without support from hospitals and midwives that are on the front lines collecting these important specimens. The dedication and hard work of laboratory, follow-up and medical management coordinating center staff has led to continuous improvement and amazing advancements in this important public health program. The Department of Community Health would like to acknowledge and thank everyone involved with Michigan's NBS system for their superb work over the past 50 years that helps to save Michigan newborns nearly every day!

National 50th Anniversary of Newborn Screening - 2013 
The Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sponsored a campaign to celebrate 50 years of saving and improving babies' lives through newborn screening. The aim of the national campaign was to raise awareness and increase public understanding of the scope and impact of newborn screening. The traveling exhibit visited Michigan and with the help from Michigan's Newborn Screening Management Centers, it was displayed across the state. This two week event celebrated in September 2013, gave citizens an opportunity to learn more about the successes of Michigan's Newborn Screening Program and raised awareness about the Michigan BioTrust for Health
