Unresolved Issues in Newborn Screening: Quantifying the Harms of a False Positive Result

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) have funded Beth Tarini, M.D., and her team to comprehensively examine the scope, magnitude and risk factors for harms to both children who receive false positive newborn screening (NBS) results and their families.
