NANT Members, without you, there is no NANT, no passionate community to support. There is no mission or vision to improve neurodevelopmental outcomes for babies in the NICU through the unique contributions of neonatal therapy. Today, we, the NANT Team, want to thank every Member.
Your desire to be part of this mission, deep commitment to the specialty and each other, and dedication to the tiny patients you serve led to an ~15% increase in NANT Membership in 2023. You’re in all 50 states, 33 countries (!), and over 1,300 hospitals.
And you don’t just belong, you engage – you completed over 4,500 online NANT courses in one year! Hundreds of you attended NANT 13. You asked and replied to countless questions and readily shared resources in your private Facebook Community. You prevented each other from reinventing the wheel on so many levels and you did it with professionalism and a collaborative spirit. It’s clear that you put babies and families first. It’s an inspiring thing to watch.
Your energy is contagious.
You have proven that it doesn’t take millions of people to change the world. You have demonstrated that a small-ish, organized community of people who know their purpose and are willing to collaborate can optimize the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of babies around the globe.
So, while you’re doing the hard work in the NICU today, remember that you are an invaluable part of something bigger. We see you: clinicians, researchers, professors, mentors, leaders, innovators, and students. We appreciate you. We are excited to get up every day and support you.
Thank you, NANT Members. Your increase in number and engagement are nods to the future of neonatal therapy and the hopeful outcomes for babies in NICUs everywhere.
