    Despite significant advances in neonatal care, morbidity and mortality rates associated with necrotizing enterocolitis have not improved significantly in over 30 years. This conference will bring together leaders in the field to improve communication and develop new collaborations, new strategic lines of research, and new protocols to help diagnose, prevent, and treat this devastating disease. This first US-based NEC Conference will catalyze the development of new research and clinical approaches, along with clear implementation strategies, designed to better prevent and treat this disease.
    Conference Goals:
  • Establish a transdisciplinary collaboration of stakeholders in NEC to accelerate the implementation and standardization of established evidence based practices that can help to reduce the incidence and morbidity of NEC.
  • Explore methods for empowering parents/families and supporting their engagement as part of their baby?s care team.
  • Serve as a venue for leading researchers to create new collaborations and new lines of investigation including shared clinical databases and tissue banking.
