APHL Newborn Screening Virtual Symposium 2020 Header

In place of APHL's traditional in-person Newborn Screening Symposium, we are excited to host the APHL 2020 Newborn Screening Virtual Symposium, an online event that will deliver timely content, networking and more for the newborn screening community. We look forward to this opportunity to share best practices, connect with our colleagues and strengthen the newborn screening system. 

2020 NBS Virtual kicks off in October—we look forward to (virtually) seeing you there!

Bringing the APHL Newborn Screening Symposium to You

2020 NBS Virtual will feature a series of online sessions, e-poster presentations, and roundtables on selected topics that would have been included during our in-person symposium. Experts will discuss the pandemic response and other timely topics, including follow-up, quality improvement, current and candidate conditions and the parent/patient perspective. We'll pair the sessions with a live Q&A with presenters, and ensure each recording is available for easy on-demand access after the symposium. Additionally, each e-poster will be available to view on-demand throughout the symposium, and attendees will have the opportunity to peruse a virtual exhibitor hall with representatives available for 1:1 chats.

Highlights include: 

  • Live and on-demand content

  • CME, CNE, CHES, Genetic Counselor and PACE continuing education credits available

  • Interactive poster hall

  • Opportunity to engage with industry partners and representatives

  • Fun and engaging activities!


Sessions will run from October 20 – November 12, with up to three sessions per day on Tuesdays and Thursdays (excluding holidays).

The preliminary program is available.
