- HIElights of Hope
We come together every April – families, clinicians, researchers, partners, supporters and others in our global community – to spread awareness into the world about neonatal and childhood acquired Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. This year, the community theme is HOPE INSPIRES.
Our community is over 7,000 strong, across all ages and outcomes, from all over the world, and every day we are inspired by the advocacy, creativity, connection, support and community that is built.
We both know all too well the isolation that can exist for our families. Each of us experienced HIE with our children, and we know when we connect as a community, we are Better Together.
The last few years have been a challenge for our community and world. But through it all, our community has grown stronger, and as usual, finds creative ways to move forward in their journey with HIE in the best way possible.
This year, we are eager to celebrate as much as we can, continue lifting up one another, connecting, and focus on relentlessly pursuing a better world for our children and families.
We hope you will join us in this effort, and have outlined several ways to be involved this April in the toolkit, and below.
