The Spina Bifida Program and team members at Children’s of Alabama are committed to furthering the science and knowledge relating to Spina Bifida. Therefore, our goal is to conduct advanced research that contributes to the evolving development of best practices in each of the disciplines affecting this population. Currently we are participating in the Spina Bifida Patient Registry Project funded through the Centers for Disease Control and we have been instrumental in the success of this project. Several members of our clinic family attended and presented at the 2nd Spina Bifida World Congress held in March 2012.
