The NEC Society and University of Arizona NEC-Zero are deeply committed to improving outcomes for medically fragile infants at risk of necrotizing enterocolitis, through evidence-based prevention strategies, patient-family integrated care, and collaboration.
The NEC Society and NEC-Zero came together to create a video that aims to inspire providers and patient-families in the NICU to partner in their effort to reduce the risks of NEC and improve outcomes for babies.
