Phoenix, AZ, April 29, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Graham’s Foundation (http://GrahamsFoundation.org), the global support organization for parents going through the journey of prematurity, has announced it will preview its newly redesigned care packages for preemie parents at a booth shared with Bionix at the 21st Annual NICU Leadership Forum in Phoenix, AZ.
The NICU Leadership Forum is attended by professionals from the NICU, PICU, CVICU and other pediatric specialty areas who are looking for practical solutions for the challenges they face caring for the most vulnerable babies. Graham's Foundation president Nick Hall will be at the event to connect with leaders in the neonatology space who want to support parents of the preemies in their care but need help to do so.
“While surveys our organization has conducted show that family centered care is an emerging trend in neonatology, they’ve also shown that reaching parents when they need support most can be incredibly difficult,” Hall said. “Graham’s Foundation’s primary mission is to support parents of preemies to improve outcomes for entire families. It’s a model that works because research shows that when parents receive encouragement, education and community, they’re better equipped to care for their babies.”
The organization’s free care packages are designed to meet not only the practical needs of families in the NICU and those making the transition home, but also the emotional needs of moms and dads coping with the ups and downs of premature birth. They also offer a third care package option for families who are dealing with the loss of a premature infant.
