March 3rd is World Birth Defects Day (WBDD).


The vision for WBDD 2017 is to raise birth defects awareness through global networking to get out the message that birth defects impact millions of families and that a sustained focus is needed to support research, prevention, treatment and services.  I am extending this invitation to the NBDPN membership, to join the International Congress of Birth Defects Surveillance and Research (ICBDSR) and global partners around the world in calling attention to birth defects on WBDD.

WBDD is an opportunity to increase awareness of birth defects and of your own organization and the great work it does.  Please see the participation form with suggested activities and WBDD logo, attached for your convenience.

Together we can make an impact on WBDD 2017 and throughout the year!
