November 12, 2018 9:07 AM | Anonymous

MPHA Members:


The Advisory Committee for Heritable and Congenital Disorders that advises the MN Newborn Screening Program has vacancies coming available in January and applications are now being accepted.


This committee meets twice per year (spring and fall). Meetings consist of program updates, review of pertinent topics related to newborn screening (including guest lecturers) followed by questions and discussion, and when applicable, voting on which disorders to add to Minnesota’s newborn screening panel. Members of this committee consist of parents, providers, and other experts with vested interest in newborn screening. Membership terms are for four years. At the end of the four-year term, members are welcome to re-apply. 

We are seeking a variety of representation of roles on our committee and are thus circulating our current vacancies in hopes of increasing the diversity and experience of those who apply. If interested, instructions for how to apply are below.


Applications should include:

• Open Appointments Application Form (completed, signed, anddated) 
• Letter of interest/cover letter, and 
• Resume or biography


Applications may be submitted online, by email to Open.Appointments@state.mn.us, or by mail or in person to:

Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State 
180 State Office Building 
100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. 
St Paul, MN 55155-1299


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We are hoping to have our pool of candidates available to be reviewed by December.


Thank you for your time! 

Sondra and Maggie 

Committee Co-Coordinators
