  2. 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.
  3. Explore methods for empowering parents/families and supporting their engagement as part of their baby’s care team.
  4. Serve as a venue for researchers to create new collaborations and lines of investigation including shared clinical databases and tissue banking.
