* ACHDNC: Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children
ACHDNC reviews nominations of conditions to be included in the uniform panel.
The result is that the overwhelming majority of the infants born in the United States are tested by a newborn screening panel very similar to that recommended by the ACHDNC and numerous other professional groups.
