Dear Family Engagement Collaborative, 

Thank you to all who were able to join our March webinar series last week! We want to send a special thank you to Nicole Lomerson who allowed us to hear her incredible story as a NICU mom with cerebral palsy and how she navigated the NICU. She also shared some valuable resources for improving the quality of care for families with disabilities (listed below)! We also want to send a special thank you to Dr. Cordova Ramos, Señorita Garcia Ramos, and the Velez Ortiz family who did an incredible job sharing their testimony! Finally, we want to send a sincere thank you to the leadership team who helped put this all together! We appreciate you all! 

Meg Parker, Neonatologist at BMC and Leader of the NeoQIC Family Engagement Project
