This newly formed organization serves individuals with Spina Bifida and their families in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.
Over 166,000 Americans live with this birth defect, and through quality of life programs, the SBAMAR has a dedicated group of professionals, families and individuals with Spina Bifida working to provide resources, educate, network, advocate and to bring about public awareness of Spina Bifida and folic acid's role in reducing the risk.
