Dr. Juberg To Discuss Birth Defects Dr. Robert Juberg, director of the Ark-La-Tex Birth Defects and Genetic Counseling Center of Louisiana State University Medical School at Shreveport, will speak to the Caddo-Bossier Council for Exceptional Child-ren, today at 3:30 p.m. at Caddo School for Exceptional Children. A graduate of Carleton Col-lege in Northfield, Minn., Dr. Juberg received M.S., M.D., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Michigan. He interned at Charity Hospital in New Orleans and took his residency in pediatrics at Tu-lane University, Charity Hospi-tal, and the University of Chicago Clinic. He is a member of numerous professional organizations, in-cluding the American Society of Human Genetics, the American Eugenics Society, and the Wes-ter Society for Pediatric Re-search. His study, "A Genetic Evaluation of Bituminous Coal Miners", was authorized and financed by the Appalachian Laboratory for Occupational Respiratory Health Sciences of the National I n s t i t u t e s of Health. Because of wide-spread inter-est in the Birth Defects Center, the Council for Exceptional Children has extended an open invitation to educators and the general public. The special educators who comprise the council are espe-cially concerned with the genet-ic research which directly af-fects educational and rehabilita-tional needs of children. Of particular interest are prob-lems of congenital deafness, blindness, mental retardation, and malformations such as cleft palate. Dr. Juberg will discuss the functions of the Birth Defects and Genetic Counseling Center, explaining the investigative, diagnostic, and therapeutic phases of the program. Howev-er, a portion of the session will be devoted to questions and answers, persuing the special interests and concerns of the group.
