Chapter Updates

On December 27, 2017 the Minnesota Commissioner of Health accepted the recommendation of the state's Advisory Committee on Heritable and Congenital Disorders to add SMA to Minnesota's newborn screening panel. With this decision, Minnesota becomes the second state to adopt permanent newborn screening for SMA. Thank you to all the advocates in Minnesota who have made this progress possible!

The Minnesota Chapter needs volunteers to join the fundraising committee for this years Walk-n-Roll! The Walk-n-Roll will take place September 8, 2018 at the Foundation Shelter in Roseville, MN. Please contact Brittany Richter at Brittany.Richter@curesma.org if you are interested or have any questions.
