Emergency Preparedness Workgroup

Overview

In response to the profound impact of Hurricanes Katrina, which significantly disrupted newborn screening (NBS) as well as other healthcare services along the gulf coast, the Southeast Regional NBS & Genetics Collaborative (SERC) created an ongoing Emergency Preparedness Workgroup.  This Workgroup meets bimonthly to discuss methods and systems of mitigating disruptions to NBS & Genetic services caused by future emergencies.
