Do you know a NICU Hero? Did you ever get a chance to thank that special person?
Hand to Hold and Mead Johnson Nutrition are accepting nominations from April 1 to , to the Third Annual NICU Heroes Awards. They are inviting parents and caregivers to nominate NICU health care professionals whose compassionate care and dedication helped lessen the emotional toll of a NICU stay and ensured the best outcome for their baby and family.
There really are so many NICU and bereaved families receive care from neonatal staff who goes above and beyond what is required.
Nominating is easy. Fill out a short form with contact information, your story, hospital name and the name and email of the NICU professional you'd like to nominate. That’s it!
Nominations will be from April 1 to . All nominees will receive a Certificate of Nomination in recognition of their achievement and a copy of the story you share about the difference they made for your child/ren and family. It's a wonderful way to share your appreciation for their efforts when words hardly seem enough.
A panel of judges, composed of NICU parents and active NICU professionals, will judge the awards and decide on two winners. The two NICU Heroes Award Winners will receive the following:
· A a NICU Hero Award certificate and trophy, presented at the winner’s hospital,
· A $2,500 donation made in their honor to the pediatric healthcare charity of their choice*, and
