The CDC has established a listserv to enhance communication among people working at the state level in birth defects surveillance and prevention. A listserv is an e-mail forum where messages are posted to a common address which can be viewed by anyone subscribing to the listserv. Postings have included requests for information about cluster investigations, teratology web site addresses, announcements of meetings and job openings, requests for literature on birth defect surveillance, and minutes from the last meeting of birth defect surveillance programs. The NBDPN encourages all of its members and other interested persons to subscribe the listserv and join in the dialogue about birth defects.
