SCID Newborn Screening getting closer to reality

I'm thankful for all the hard work it has taken to move this regulatory action this far and hope the momentum continues. This is such an important issue for the infants and children in the Commonwealth of Virginia. No child should die from a disease which can so easily be detected. This test makes sense as a health initiative, as a budgetary issue, and as an ethical issue. Now lets finish the job and move the Regulatory Action on to completion!
