Spina Bifida Awareness Week 2009

Spina Bifida Awareness Week
Food for the future will be the focus of Spina Bifida Awareness Week 2009 (September 1-7) as Northcott Disability Services promote the healthy intake of folate rich meals to reduce the incidence of neural tube defects such as spin bifida.

Spina bifida means split or divided spine. It occurs when a babys spine does not close properly during the first month of pregnancy.

The week, a campaign run by Northcott, will feature events and activities in schools, hospitals, mothers groups and the community to promote food for the future.
