Description:

The NICU Consortium Partnership is a coalition of local public health staff, NICU staff, early intervention staff, primary care providers, lactation consultants, home health agencies, family advocates and other community agency staff who hope to “promote a coordinated system of discharge and follow up for babies and their families transitioning from the NICU to their home and community.”

Our meetings are open to all who are work with families, particularly those who work with premature medically fragile and at-risk infants or those who are interested in supporting our efforts. The meetings provide opportunities to learn from local or national speakers about the health and developmental needs of infants and young children, especially premature and vulnerable infants. There are also updates at each meeting on community resources and opportunities networking.
