Neural tube defects are serious birth defects of the brain and spine. They are a major cause of death and lifelong disability worldwide. Up to 85 percent of neural tube defects can be prevented if women consume enough folic acid before and during early pregnancy. But worldwide only 15 percent of neural tube defects are prevented.
Join us for this session of Public Health Grand Rounds as experts discuss how fortifying grains with folic acid could prevent these defects. Hear about the challenges and opportunities for these efforts.
