Three Years Later: Babies Are Still Dying

Nine states have passed related legislation. Seven states are screening under mandate.
More hospitals are screening without mandates.
Yet, I still get notes in my inbox from parents that lost their baby due to an undetected CHD. Until those notes stop, it’s like no work . . .
