NCBDDD's 6th annual report.
NCBDDD continues to do wonderful work making a difference across the lifespan, which is evidenced through the execution of our four focus areas:
• Saving Babies Through Birth Defects Prevention and Research
• Helping Children Live to the Fullest by Understanding Developmental Disabilities like Autism
• Protecting People and Preventing Complications of Blood Disorders,
• Improving Health of People with Disabilities
These focus areas exemplify the sustained need to protect those who are vulnerable to health risks, such as babies, children, people with blood disorders, and people with disabilities. And this year, to further our focus area work, we have increased our efforts to advance the NCBDDD’s public health impact by promoting three key action areas, uniquely known as Strategic Health Initiatives: Safer Medication Use in Pregnancy, Preventing Health Care Associated Venous Thromboembolism (VTE), and Aligning Practice with Treatment Guidelines for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Young Children.
