Join the Society for Birth Defects Research and Prevention’s Past Presidents Drs. Christina Chambers and Kenneth Lyons Jones at our sister society MotherToBaby for a special World Birth Defects Day Facebook and Instagram Live Chat March 3 at 10:00 am Pacific / 1 pm Eastern. They will be answering questions about birth defects, and Dr. Miguel Del Campo of UC San Diego will be on hand to answers questions in Spanish.
Partner organizations around the world, including March of Dimes and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will be tuning in to the live event as well.
How to participate: Follow @MotherToBaby on Facebook or @mothertobabyotis on Instagram (or both). You might get a notification from Facebook or Instagram that the MotherToBaby page you follow is going live at the live broadcast start time. Alternatively, just go to MotherToBaby’s profile on either Facebook or Instagram at the broadcast start time (10 am Pacific / 1 pm Eastern). You can also get a reminder for the live event by clicking “going” on the Facebook event created for it: https://www.facebook.com/events/213655426471361/
On Facebook, the live video should just be playing at the top of MotherToBaby’s page. On Instagram, you will see a small badge around the story circles at the top of the screen that says “live.” Tap to enter the live stream. The person streaming will know that you are tuning in.
With either platform, once you are watching the live stream, you can comment or ask questions, the same way you’d engage with a non-live post.
