My AWHONN Resources

The AWHONN Late Preterm Infant Initiative is a multi-year endeavor addressing the special needs of infants born between 34 and 36 completed weeks of gestation.  Goals include increasing health care provider and consumer awareness of the risks and ensuring evidence-based educational resources for health care providers to provide appropriate assessment and care for these vulnerable newborns.

The Late Preterm Infant Research Based Project was supported through an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson Pediatric Institute, LLC.
