Premature and medically fragile infants are at risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a devastating intestinal disease. Mothers own milk (MOM) helps to reduce the risks of NEC. When mothers own milk is unavailable, pasteurized donor milk is the next best option.
The NEC Society is committed to raising awareness, improving outcomes and driving NEC research. In pursuit of these goals, the NEC Society is working to map out the use of donor milk for medically fragile infants in the United States.
The goal is to empower patient-families, clinicians, scientists, legislators, as well as nonprofit and professional organizations with information that can support efforts to improve outcomes for babies at risk of NEC.
