acid materials from the Spina Bifida Association of America (SBAA)
We have chosen neural tube defects (NTDs) as the focus for
the informational materials and additional resources for this
years packet. This is in celebration of the 10th
anniversary of the US Public Health Service recommendation that
all women of childbearing age take 400 micrograms of folic acid
each day to reduce their risk of having a baby with an NTD.
We are pleased to have had the collaboration of the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), March of Dimes (MOD)
and the Spina Bifida Association of America (SBAA) in gathering
and producing these materials.
We hope these materials will be useful to you in promoting
awareness of Birth Defects Prevention Month. We would like to
know if these materials are of value and how you use them.
Please complete the attached evaluation form (form
- PDF or form
- MS Word). We are especially interested in any innovative
activities you undertake, that can be replicated by others,
in working for the primary prevention of birth defects. Materials
developed by the Education Committee are available electronically
and can be tailored to your specific agencys mission,
needs and capacity. Please contact us if we can be of assistance
in this regard. Materials from the CDC, MOD, and SBAA can be
obtained directly from them.
If you have questions about any of these materials you may
contact Civillia Winslow Hill at (360) 235-3518, firstname.lastname@example.org,
or Cara Mai at (770) 488-3550, email@example.com.
We hope you find the information and materials useful as you
join us in promoting your own campaigns for Birth Defects Prevention
Month, January 2003.
