Continuing Education


The Wisconsin Newborn Screening Program has produced three interactive training webinars on collection and submission of newborn screening specimens.

The intended audience for all webinars includes nurses, midwives, phlebotomists, physicians and all health care workers who participate in the newborn screening process. These webinars can be used to train new health care workers as well as refresh the skill set of those currently performing newborn specimen collections.
