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 our generous community of supporters, in 2019 the NEC Society brought us closer to a world without necrotizing enterocolitis. Over the last year, we’ve engaged thousands of diverse stakeholders from around the globe. Together, we’ve launched research projects, empowered families affected by NEC, and elevated the status of this devastating disease so we can garner more research funding.
