Utah is among the most forward thinking U.S. States when it comes to addressing congenital CMV and its devastating, long-term affects on children. Utah lawmakers led the nation by passing a bill that directs the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) to establish a public education program to raise awareness of CMV and ways to prevent it spreading. As part of the education effort, the UDOH, public health advocates, and healthcare providers, are meeting to share their ideas on how to get the CMV message out to women who are pregnant or may become pregnant.
