Lurie Children's Hospital: Improving Awareness and the Timely Diagnosis of cCMV in Illinois

Our goal is to be able to provide a rapid diagnosis for those newborns who fail their hearing screens in the newborn nursery, when the hearing loss is attributable to infection with CMV during pregnancy.  Recent research has revealed treatment options for those newborns found to have hearing loss from congenital CMV, to optimize hearing outcomes and neurodevelopment. 

Save babies on #GivingTuesday by donating to National CMV

It’s that time of year again… where friends and families gather together to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday and then, inevitably, to shop. Whether it’s venturing out to Black Friday with loved ones or shopping Cyber Monday from the comfort of your laptop, shoppers want to save and save big. This holiday season, there’s a new opportunity to save and it’s what National CMV works towards every day of the year—saving babies from CMV.
