UCS secures award with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD)

The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) strives to advance the health and well-being of our nation’s most vulnerable populations through surveillance, research, and prevention of birth defects and infant disorders; researching and understanding developmental disabilities; preventing the complications of blood disorders; and improving the health of people living with disabilities.

UCS is proud to be awarded this effort to support NCBDDD, building upon our years of specialized Health services experience within DOD. Our staff will be providing administrative, management, health communication, project management, and consulting services to assist with the development and advocacy of sound public health policies and provide subject matter expertise.

Services include expert consultation and technical support for Early Hearing Detection and Intervention, Statistical Support, Medical Records Abstraction Support Services, User Relations and Communications, Public Health Analysis, and Clinical/Geneticist Support Services.
