    Description: Description: Currently almost all U.S. States mandate newborn screening for more than 30 heritable and congenital conditions. While these programs have been appropriately heralded as a major public health success, controversies persist over several issues including parental permission, retention and research use of residual bloodspots, and the appropriate criteria for including new conditions on the panels. This presentation will address these issues and will include data from several NIH funded studies at the University of Utah.
