What We Do
Working to Improve the Health of Moms & Babies
Birth defects affect 1 in 33 babies. While not all birth defects can be prevented, many can. UC San Diego’s Center for Better Beginnings works to identify, prevent and treat birth defects that are caused by environmental factors. Since these harmful exposures occur outside of our genetics, we strive to reduce the risks of birth defects with the goal of eliminating them from our lives.
