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. Although our efforts are broad and far-reaching, we have identified four critical Center-level thematic areas:
> Saving babies through birth defects prevention and research
> Helping children live to the fullest by understanding developmental disabilities
> Protecting people by preventing the complications of blood disorders
> Improving the health of people living with disabilities
