The NEC Society is a clinician-family collaborative organization specifically focused on the understanding, prevention, and treatment of NEC. The NEC Society was launched in 2014 and is spearheaded by two mothers who lost their own babies to NEC.
We are proud to bring both the family perspective and an evidence-based clinical perspective to all of our work. Families who have been impacted by NEC join us from across the United States and around the world. The members of the NEC Society’s Scientific Advisory Council are among the most experienced NEC clinicians and researchers. Both groups are critical to the NEC Society’s vision of building a world without necrotizing enterocolitis.
