The Southern Cross Association Annual Poker Run is on again this year. For Spina Bifida Awareness over 400 bikers and pillions will ride through rural Queensland to make it a wonderful event.

Minimise the risk of your baby having spina bifida
A simple vitamin called folic acid taken daily can make a huge difference to the risks of your baby developing spina bifida.
If you are in a high risk group (have any family history of spina bifida or other neural tube defect, have type 1 diabetes or take some anti-epileptic medication) then please download and read our You and Your Pregnancy brochure.This site is maintained by Bill Shead, the Information Officer & Manager of SBH Queensland.
