The Newborn Screening Advisory Committee advises the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) on strategic planning, policy, rules and services related to newborn screening and additional newborn screening tests. The Commissioner of DSHS appoints members of the committee.
The Newborn Screening Advisory Committee was mandated by House Bill (HB) 1795, 81st Texas Legislature (2009), relating to newborn screening and the creation of the Newborn Screening Advisory Committee.
HB 1795 is also known as “Greyson’s Law” in memory of Greyson Morris.
The Committee has nine members. Members include health care providers, a hospital representative, persons who have a family member affected by a condition for which newborn screening is or may be required, and persons involved in the delivery of newborn screening services, follow-up, or treatment in the state.
