What do you get when you bring together leaders in the field of Neonatal Neuro Critical Care from United States institutions such as Stanford, Yale, Duke, Harvard, and UCSF, as well as international experts from Canada, Brazil, and Ireland, along with parent collaboration through HOPE for HIE Foundation? The Newborn Brain Society!
The newly launched Newborn Brain Society (NBS) opened for membership last month with plans support and provide a platform for experts in neonatal neurocritical and neuroprotective care to develop best practice guidelines to improve care of the newborn brain world wide.
We started this idea originally through an existing group that was started in 2015 through the Neonatal Neuro Critical Care Special Interest Group (NNCC-SIG). We wanted to facilitate multidisciplinary, international collaboration between clinicians, parents, scientists, and others with a focus on newborn brain care; and no other society or organization currently exists in this structure and philosophy.
Mohamed El-Dib, MD, founding member and President of the organization.
Membership is open. You can find out more on the Newborn Brain Society website at https://newbornbrainsociety.org/
