NEC Society and Cincinnati Children’s Announce Virtual Sessions

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 NEC Symposium has been postponed. A new date for the NEC Symposium will be announced once it is safe to hold in-person meetings. Due to the unique nature of the NEC Symposium, and how it cultivates trust, rapport, and collaboration between diverse stakeholders from around the globe, we do not feel we can recreate a virtual version of the NEC Symposium. Nevertheless, we recognize that it is critical for our community to come together and to feel connected, activated, and energized.

We are delighted to announce our virtual sessions, May 19 – 21, 2021, which coincide with NEC Awareness Week. Registration will open in the coming months.

Dr. Diana Bianchi, the Director of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), part of the National Institutes of Health, will present on Wednesday, May 19 @ 12pmET.

Dr. Neena Modi, Professor of Neonatal Medicine at Imperial College London, will present on Thursday, May 20 @ 12pmET.

In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Cincinnati Children’s and the NEC Society.  Cincinnati Children’s is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
