On this episode of NANNcast, Jill is joined by Sheila Gephart, a nurse scientist, Advances in Neonatal Care editorial board member, and associate professor at the University of Arizona. Sheila worked with babies diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) as a bedside nurse. This experience led to her fascination and dedication to NEC research and prevention. Listen in to hear about Sheila’s research, GutCheck NEC, and how nurses can help prevent NEC.
