PerkinElmer Presents Webinar on Cost Effectiveness of SCID Newborn Screening


On April 17, 2014, PerkinElmer will be presenting a free webcast with Dr. Isabelle Durand-Zaleski of the Paris Health Economics and Health Services Research Unit to discuss the cost effectiveness of implementing newborn screening for Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID). The presentation will look at the costs of screening all newborns and at the cost potentially avoided by an early treatment. The webinar duration is 20 minutes consisting of a 10-minute presentation and 10-minute Q&A session. As this presentation is being hosted in France, it will be live at 4:00 a.m. EST. However, the webinar will be recorded, and the video will be available to view online in the near future.
