The current Contact Name field will be removed from the screen.
Birth Country field is no longer a required field on the Enrollment screen.
A new field, Legal Sex, has been added to the Enrollment screen. Non Binary is now available in the dropdown values for Legal Sex and Gender. Legal Sex field is defined as a person’s assigned sex at birth.
