INC Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) Workgroup Meeting at UC Davis
On behalf of the NEC Co-Chairs, Mickey Caplan and Jennifer Canvasser, thank you for contributing to the success of the International Neonatal Consortium’s NEC Workgroup meeting at UC – Davis on April 5, 2017. For your information, the meeting slides can be found here.
Mickey Caplan’s brief meeting overview follows:
Thanks to you all for participating in the recent NEC Workgroup meeting. After lots of rich discussion, we came to a consensus that supported the construction of a ‘white paper’ on NEC. The group opined that it would be useful to devise a white paper in which many international thought leaders on NEC could contribute to recommendations for moving the field forward.
Many of INC’s members also attended the NEC Symposium (April 5-7th, 2017) in Davis. An executive summary of that symposium is available here and the proceedings of the NEC Symposium will be featured in Seminars in Pediatric Surgery (February 2018 issue.)
