A big win for Wisconsin!


On Monday March 3rd, Governor Scott Walker signed Senate Bill 523 into law.  This bill gives the Department of Health Services (DHS) the authority it needs to add congenital heart defect screenings to the list of screenings that all newborns receive before they leave the hospital.   The American Heart Association will continue to work with DHS to ensure that Pulse Oximetry testing is officially added to the newborn screening list.
