Does the March of Dimes support research on newborn jaundice?

0

The March of Dimes has long supported research aimed at improving prevention and treatment of newborn jaundice. In 2003, the March of Dimes cosponsored a conference with the AAP, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health, aimed at identifying areas where research is needed to improve the diagnosis and treatment of newborn jaundice (6). The March of Dimes also is collaborating with these and other health organizations in the Kernicterus Prevention Partnership, which aims to prevent all new cases of kernicterus in any full-term or near-term baby born in this country by educating health care providers, as well as families, about the potential hazards of newborn jaundice.
