The MACDP is a population-based surveillance system for birth defects currently covering three counties in Metropolitan Atlanta. Since 1997, CDC has funded casecontrol studies of major birth defects that utilize existing birth defect surveillance registries (including MACDP) to identify cases and study birth defects causes in participating states/municipalities across the United States. BD–STEPS is a case-control study that is similar to the previous CDC-funded birth defects case-control study, NBDPS, which stopped interviewing participants in 2013.

Background and Brief Description

    The Laboratory Response Network (LRN) was established by the 
Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC) in accordance with Presidential Decision Directive 
39, which outlined national anti-terrorism policies and assigned 
specific missions to Federal departments and agencies. The LRN's

of laboratories that can respond to acts of biological, chemical, or 
radiological terrorism and other public health emergencies. Federal, 
state and local public health laboratories voluntarily join the LRN.
    The LRN Program Office maintains a database of information for each 
member laboratory that includes contact information as well as staff 
and equipment inventories. However, semiannually or during emergency 
response the LRN Program Office may conduct a Special Data Call to 
obtain additional information from LRN Member Laboratories in regards 
to biological or chemical terrorism preparedness. Special Data Calls 
may be conducted via queries that are distributed by broadcast emails
