A full week devoted to celebrating Neonatal Therapists’ inspirational and dedicated work runs from September 19 through 25.
The National Association of Neonatal Therapists (NANT) announces the annual International Neonatal Therapy Week (INTW) will be held Sept. 19-25, 2021. This weeklong event is sponsored by NANT and its Premier Partners.
The theme for the week is, “Connected By A Shared Vision” and is dedicated to recognizing the important work of the world’s occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech-language pathologists who support infants and families in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Current NANT Members receive thank-you gestures throughout the week, designed to inform, inspire, and support, as they continue their tireless efforts in the health and development of the babies in their care. Those who are not already NANT Members can take advantage of special offers during INTW.
NANT members and non-members alike are encouraged to spread the word about this global celebration by sharing their support on social media.
“Neonatal therapists have been working in the NICU for decades, often with very little support. Some of our international Members are the sole neonatal therapist in their country. This week is an ideal time to recognize all of them and celebrate their individual and collective contributions to improving neurodevelopmental outcomes for babies in the NICU,” said Sue Ludwig, NANT President.
“Our 2021 theme reflects our tight-knit global Member community,” Ludwig continued. “We are geographically separated but united by our vision for babies."
