A joint initiative between the Utah Department of Health and Utah Regional Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (URLEND), a project at Utah State University's Center for Persons with Disabilities warns of the dangers of cytomegalovirus, a dangerous virus that affects pregnant women and causes more long-term health problems for their babies than Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome and neural tube defects.

According to the Utah Cytomegalovirus - CMV Public Health Initiative Facebook page, the group's mission is to "Educate women of child-bearing age in Utah on the risks of cytomegalovirus (CMV) during pregnancy and to teach them strategies for CMV prevention."

Visit the group's Facebook page to view 30- and 60-second public service announcements and to read more information about CMV.
