Welcome to North Dakota's Newborn Screening Website!
Here you will find information and resources for parents and providers on Newborn Screening in North Dakota. Newborn screening is a state public health service that reaches each of the nearly 4 million babies born in the United States each year. It ensures that all babies are screened for certain rare, but serious health conditions at birth. For babies identified with a health condition, early detection allows providers to start treatment before the baby becomes symptomatic and harmful effects happen.
