#109 - 📑 Journal Club 43


Good morning friends 👋

We have an exciting episode of journal club for your today. We discussed a variety of topic ranging from the effect of maternal voice on infant feeding, whether second twins have worse outcomes compared to their twin, the benefits of transpyloric feeds in BPD patients, the long term effects on therapeutic hypothermia into adolescence, and more.

We are so thankful for everyone who registered for the Delphi Conference. If you are planning to join us in March, take advantage of our early bird rates before February 1st. Check out the conference agenda right here:
