The NEC Society is honored to receive the support of MEDNAX, a national health solutions partner specializing in neonatal, maternal-fetal, pediatric subspecialties, anesthesia and teleradiology. MEDNAX began as a single neonatology group in 1979, and while their company’s focus has expanded, its commitment to preventing and improving the outcomes of necrotizing enterocolitis has remained a priority.
The NEC Society and MEDNAX share a keen dedication to patient-family centered care, innovation and integrity, resulting in an ideal partnership. Dr. Jorge Del Toro, Chief Medical Officer, Women’s and Children’s Services for MEDNAX shares, “We commend the NEC Society’s efforts in advocacy and education, and wish the organization great success in addressing this important and complex neonatal condition.”
Jennifer Canvasser, founder and executive director of the NEC Society, adds, “We are incredibly grateful and thrilled that MEDNAX supports the NEC Society’s mission and core values. By working together, the NEC Society and MEDNAX can reach more stakeholders and better champion research, policies and practices that will help to reduce the incidence of this devastating disease.”
