About Us


The Oregon BASS tracks birth anomalies in Oregon children from birth to age 6. We do this to promote awareness, education, and prevention of birth anomalies, and to understand the health care needs for these children. We also provide support for organizations that help link families and those living with birth anomalies to resources.


An Oregon where all people with birth anomalies count and are connected with the treatment and resources they need.
