"The lectures have been 100% clinically relevant. Furthermore, they have pushed us to revise the way we practice here in Gallup. I can't tell you how excited I am to continue this partnership."

"The NICU Team visit was a fantastic opportunity for our nursing, medical and respiratory staff to update their skills and knowledge in neonatal care. They were absolutely wonderful in their willingness to share their wealth of knowledge and experience with us. Thank you for making this happen at GIMC. We look forward to having the opportunity to meet and share experiences with more BWH staff in the future."
