The NEC Society is grateful for all that Dr. Ira Adams-Chapman contributed to our community and the neonatal field. We had the privilege of working with her through our efforts to better understand and help improve the long-term outcomes for infants who survive necrotizing enterocolitis.
Our webinar on Long-Term NEC Outcomes featured Dr. Ira Adams-Chapman (the webinar recording and slides are available) and she also helped to shape our research project on the Long-Term Outcomes of NEC.
A short time after our webinar together, Dr. Adams-Chapman unexpectedly passed away. Dr. Adams-Chapman was a kind, compassionate advocate for infants and children, and devoted her career towards conducting research on the neurodevelopmental outcome of infants with complications of prematurity, such as necrotizing enterocolitis. She is survived by her two children. Our thoughts and hearts are with Ira’s family.
