Newborn screening programs are a collaborative effort between public health departments, hospitals, government agencies, and the parents of the children screened. As new technologies evolve, new challenges are faced. The goal of the STAR-G project was to examine the financial, ethical, legal, and social issues posed by the use of new technologies in newborn screening.

The STAR-G Project officially ended in 2004, but the Western States Regional Genetics Network (WSRGN) continues to maintain and update the STAR-G website and parent fact sheets. For more information about the WSRGN, go to: www.westernstatesgenetics.org .
