Current New Born Screening for Canada:http://genes-r-us.uthscsa.edu/CA_nbsdisorders.pdf
I/(We) Undersigned have strong belief that making NBS-Newborn Screen LAW/Mandatory “required by province of Alberta many children’s lives will be saved and appropriate treatment to be giving in timely matter. Without appropriate treatment in timely fashion can or will result in devastation, unnecessary brain damage, health complications, disabilities, and or even a cost of life depending on syndrome/disease.
I/(we) Ask Alberta Health & Wellness to take action by making NBS-Newborn screen by LAW/Mandatory across the board and NOT to leave it up to each province/or medical professionals decide rather or not to test a newborn child.
