This Thursday, U.S. News & World Report, the American Academy of Pediatrics, Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Philadelphia, and March of Dimes are hosting a live Twitter chat about premature births in the United States.
Experts are prepared to discuss the latest research and innovations in therapy. They will cover prevention and treatment; complications; what to expect in the hospital and how to care for your baby when he or she goes home.
For an overview of the chatâ€™s focus, check out the latest @USNewsHealth article.
Are there any questions youâ€™re interested in? I would be happy to send them in advance, as I will also be participating in the chat. (And please join in as well if youâ€™re one of the tweeter types yourself.)
As we rapidly round the corner to age 3 for our own favorite preemie superheroes, I am thrilled that prematurity continues to get the attention it deserves â€“ because I am keenly aware not everyone is as lucky as we have been.
