Whether you’re watching the highlight video from NANT 8, or you’ve attended past events, you understand why so many neonatal therapists report that the NANT Conference feels like coming home. We sure intend for it to feel that way. For once in your life we hope you feel like a fish IN water.
Based on pages and pages of your feedback, here are the top 5 reasons to attend NANT 9:
Relevance: There is no other (inter)national conference specifically designed for neonatal therapists. (Six countries were represented at NANT 8.) Who gets excited when the agenda is published? You guys do. You’ve searched your whole career for fragments of this specialized content and now it’s all in one place.
Some of you are brand new to the NICU and want to immerse yourself in the culture, research, and practices related to neonatal therapy, and know this is the #1 place to do it.
Camaraderie: You may not know anyone when you come to your first NANT Conference. After that, it begins to feel like family, even when you travel from another continent. Connection is one of NANT’s Core Values. We hope that value is reflected in every part of this event.
Inspiration: You spend all of your days dedicated to helping and inspiring others, often without notice. NANT 9 is bringing the fuel to fill you back up. (Perseverance requires refueling.)
Collaboration: You will experience an unparalleled spirit of collaboration at NANT 9. Territorialism between professions cannot withstand the tremendous power of a shared mission. Your profession’s unique contributions are honored, celebrated, respected, and shared.
The same is true for our industry partners and exhibitors. Who knows the most about the products and services our patients use every day? They do. Learn from them. One of the things they say about you is that you provide truly valuable feedback and insight while being incredibly curious about what is new and good for babies. You are amazing like that.
Relief: Relief that you are in the company of like-minded people. Relief that your CEUs actually apply to your specialty. Relief that you will be in the sun after winter. Relief to be surrounded by people who commonly use words like deglutition and are jazzed by things like the ontogeny of spontaneous motor activity. Relief that you have the latest evidence at your fingertips – you can be sure you’re doing the right thing.
But maybe the most important reason to attend is that the act of packing your suitcase and leaving the everyday routine of your life changes you. What could you bring to your NICU, your family, your friends, and yourself if you returned a little lighter, more supported, rested, and freshly educated?
What if your passion is recovered by being part of something way bigger than yourself? What happens when your perseverance is reignited by that passion?
