Description

TEXAS BIRTH DEFECTS RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
APRIL 8, 2004
8:00 A.M.-3:30 P.M.

THE OMNI HOTEL
9821 COLONNADE BOULEVARD, SAN ANTONIO

In 1997, a Texas Birth Defects Symposium was held in Brownsville with a primary focus on the tracking and study of neural tube defects (NTD) along the Texas-Mexico border. In the seven years since, the Texas Center for Birth Defects Research and Prevention was established, the Texas Birth Defects Registry became statewide, and active research collaborations have
developed to gain a better understanding of birth defect causes and prevention.

On April 8, 2004, a Birth Defects Symposium will be held in San Antonio to bring the data and research full circle. Presentations will include the most recent findings from the Texas Neural Tube Defects Project, a comparison of
selected birth defect rates among Texas counties and regions, linking the environment and birth defects, and a look at oral clefts in Texas. A scientific poster session spotlighting student work in birth defects epidemiology and research will also be featured.

Those encouraged to attend this FREE event include state and local public health professionals, clinicians, researchers from other fields, and anyone with a personal or professional interest in birth defects. For more information about this event, contact Amy Case at 512-458-7232, amy.case@tdh.state.tx.us.
