Congenital Anomalies Surveillance Yukon (CASY) is a tool to evaluate rates and trends of congenital anomalies as well as risk factors associated with their occurrence and helps with developing programs and services to help lower the rate of Yukon babies born with a congenital anomaly.
Does your child have a birth defect or disability?
The CASY coordinator can offer you information on the birth defect your child was born with and information on raising a child with a birth defect. This can include health services your child could benefit from and potential support networks. The coordinator can also provide you with information that may benefit you during future pregnancies.
Talk to your health care provider about being refered for a public health appointment with the CASY coordinator.
