Neonatal screening has the population-wide potential to improve the health and well-being of individuals throughout their lives. In the United States, over three million newborns, regardless of their parents’ geographic location, race, economics, or educational level, receive screening for conditions that benefit from early identification and intervention. Discoveries in genomics that enable screening, diagnosis, treatment, and disease management throughout an individual’s lifespan present an unparalleled opportunity to improve health outcomes and manage well-being beyond the neonatal period. This Special Issue features innovative efforts from communities who are helping to chart a course toward the use of a lifespan approach with the goal of assuring the best possible outcome for all newborns, their families, and their communities.
