The Wisconsin SHINE Project (Screening Hearts in Newborns) is a statewide collaboration designed to provide information and resources for universal screening of newborns for CCHD. The goal of the SHINE Project is to create a safety net for all babies born in Wisconsin by educating healthcare providers, improving access to screening and diagnostic technology, and overseeing a statewide CCHD screening and data collection system. Through this collaboration, the Wisconsin SHINE Project will ensure early detection of asymptomatic CCHD and improve the health and wellbeing of these babies and their families.
