Like each of us, the NEC Society began 2020 with specific plans, goals, and a vision for the possibilities of 2020. Of course, our best-laid plans were promptly upended when the pandemic swept across the country. Undoubtedly, this year has been challenging on so many levels. While we were forced to hit pause on our work in the spring, the NEC Society team revised our plans to reflect the limitations and realities of COVID-19.
Thanks to the generosity, kindness, and flexibility of many, we expanded and diversified our global NEC community throughout 2020. We joined the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative’s Rare As One Network and launched our NEC Research Priorities project, made possible through an Engagement Award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
We are delighted to share some of our proudest accomplishments of 2020, outlined below.
