The March of Dimes in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working to increase patient awareness of Congenital Syphilis.
Syphilis during pregnancy can cause serious problems for your baby, like premature birth (before 37 weeks of pregnancy). It also can cause death for your baby before or after birth. If your baby is born with syphilis, it can cause lifelong problems, like being blind or deaf. Learn how to protect your baby from syphilis.

PEDIATRICS STUDY REVEALS STATES WHERE MORE THAN 80% OF LEAD-POISONED CHILDREN REMAIN UNIDENTIFIED
As concerns about lead exposure peak across the U.S., a PHI study published today in Pediatrics indicates that reporting may be capturing just 2 out of every 3 children poisoned by lead. "Assessing Child Lead Poisoning Case Ascertainment in the US, 1999-2010," from PHI’s California Environmental Health Tracking Program, found states where more than 80% of lead-poisoned children remain unidentified—and researchers expect that testing rates have only declined in the subsequent years.
