#121-124 - Advocacy in the NICU


Hello Friends 👋

This week, we're dedicating a special series of episodes to advocacy in the neonatal intensive care unit. Over the course of four episodes, we'll dive into critical topics such as the newborn screening program, the provision of donor human milk to preterm infants, extending post-partum Medicaid coverage, and addressing the loss of insurance coverage at the end of the COVID public health emergency. We have invited passionate experts and key stakeholders to share their insights, experiences, and perspectives on these pressing issues. Join us on this eye-opening journey as we explore the importance of advocacy in improving neonatal care and supporting families during their most vulnerable moments. We would like to thank Dr. Shetal Shah for being the inspiration and the architect of this series. We hope you enjoy these episodes and the amazing work done by our series of guests this week.
