January is Birth Defects Prevention Month

With support from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) is commemorating National Birth Defects Prevention Month during January.
The theme for the campaign is that every 4 ½ minutes, a baby is born with a major birth defect and that birth defects are common, costly, and critical.
In collaboration with the National Birth Defects Prevention Network, promotional and educational activities will occur throughout January that will provide the latest information about birth defects and how to prevent them.
