National Birth Defects Prevention Month
Every January we celebrate the New Year by toasting and cheering and spending time with family and friends. A lot of us even make a resolution—whether it’s finally cleaning out the garage, quitting smoking, going to that Pilates class every week, or just trying to be more positive. January is all about rejuvenation and rebirth. As a sign of rebirth, January ushers in a new date and with that in mind, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and The National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN) declared January National Birth Defects Prevention Month.
