**NEW OIF RESOURCES**
The OI Foundation is excited to present two new resources for OI community members:
Navigating a New Diagnosis: A Tool Kit for Parents and Medical Professionals
This tool kit, sponsored in part by a memorial donation from Minnesota Neonatal Physicians in memory of Michael Johnston, covers topics including diagnosis of OI, types of OI, caring for a newborn with OI, and information to share with your doctor.
What You Need to Know About Clinical Trials
While the OI community and the entire world eagerly await a coronavirus vaccine, we want to briefly explain the importance of clinical trials and how people with OI can get involved in helping expand medical knowledge.
