State Newborn Screening Update


Research shows that early treatment of CF may improve growth and cognitive development in infants, so early detection of the disease is important. Thirty-two states and the District of Columbia now offer or are establishing newborn screening programs for CF, and that number is growing. Learn which states offer CF newborn screening by visiting www.cff.org or send a note to publicpolicy@cff.org to help promote CF newborn screening in additional states.
