Pro football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim
Kelly plans to visit Kansas next week to celebrate expanded medical
screenings of newborns.

Kelly, who spent 11 seasons with Buffalo Bills, established a
foundation to push for universal medical screenings for newborns in
1997. That was after his son was born with a rare, inherited
disease of the nervous system.

He is scheduled to participate in a news conference with Gov.
Kathleen Sebelius at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in her Statehouse office.

Last year, legislators and Sebelius enacted a law increasing the
number of disorders for which health care providers are supposed to
screen newborns from four to 29. The expanded screen begins July 1.
