newborns for ALD
Babies have tested
positive for ALD –
A few #LivesSaved from recent ALD testing in New York and Connecticut.
New York spends less than $2.50 per baby to test for ALD
That’s less than the national average cost of a cup of coffee.
Screening requires a drop of blood from a baby’s heel
But no new blood is drawn – ALD is added to existing lab tests.
Shouldn’t all states in the US screen their babies for ALD?
There will be 248 #LivesSaved per year once they start.
