NOTICE: We regret that we must cancel the April 2, 2020, Omar Pasalodos, M.D., Memorial Lecture.
Our institutions intend to reschedule this conference with Dr. Lockwood as speaker for a time when we can safely gather comfortably and without concern. We will notify you when a new date is confirmed.
Over 1 million children die each year due to complications of preterm birth (PTB), and many survivors face a lifetime of disability, including learning, visual and hearing impairments. In 2018, the PTB rate rose for the fourth straight year, affecting 10% of the infants born in the U.S. and an estimated 15 million babies worldwide. When women who are in true preterm labor are accurately identified in the healthcare setting, appropriate application of interventions can improve neonatal outcome.
