More about the NBS:

2015 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 55 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 Health and Human Services 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!
