2014 Genetics Conference

Newborn Screening: Tales from the Crib

Join us as we venture into the sphere of newborn screening-the past, the present and the future.
The Texas Department of State Health Services Newborn Screening and Genetics Unit invites you to attend the Fourth Annual Genetics conferences:


Newborn Screening: Tales from the Crib


Every year approximately 400,000 babies are born in Texas and receive newborn screening shortly after birth. Join us to learn how the Texas Newborn Screening system functions today and what the future might hold. New technologies have allowed for expansion of conditions detected by newborn screening. As genetic technologies continue to progress the newborn screening system will continue to evolve and bring with it new challenges to science, to clinical care, and new ethical issues. Please join our distinguished speakers to explore the world of newborn screening and genetics.



Who should attend?

Physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, PAs, CNMs, genetic counselors and others who may encounter patients with genetic disorders. Fields include, but are not limited to general and family practice, pediatrics, OB/Gyn, and Genetics.
