The Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) Society is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan organization that deliberately prioritizes equity and diversity. The NEC Society works to build an ever more inclusive community, internal and external of the organization. The NEC Society aims to ensure that all individuals and groups touched by NEC see themselves reflected within the organization and feel a sense of belonging. The NEC Society intentionally aims to elevate women, people of color, the LGBTQIA+ community, people with disabilities, and groups that have been historically marginalized.
We recognize that it is not enough to value diversity and inclusion. The NEC Society is dedicated to transforming our values into action, and we are constantly working to improve. We are stronger together. Together we are better equipped to build a more just, equitable world without this devastating disease. You can join the global NEC community that’s bringing together families, clinicians, researchers, and other people who care to #preventNEC.
