Scott Adzick, M.D. Surgeon-In-Chief at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
The birth of a child is a joyous occasion for an entire family. For the families of the more than 150,000 American babies born with a birth defect each year, however, it also brings fear and uncertainty. There are thousands of different types of birth defects and while there has been a lot of research to advance our knowledge, the causes of some are still unknown. Furthermore, families are often unaware of available treatment and can feel like there are few options.

More than 2.8 million students take Advanced Placement® exams every year in 38 subjects and beginning in January students can sign up for courses in the fall. Why should you encourage your child take an AP course? The key reasons are: admissions advantage, and the opportunity to save time and money in college. Completing AP courses and exams distinguishes students in the college application process. College admission officers like students who show initiative to learn and take challenging courses. Students who are successful in AP can get college credit in over 3,800 U.S. college and universities, graduate in 4 years, and save fifth year college costs.
