- Who We Are
- What is HIE?
- For Parents
- For Clinicians & Partners
- Get Involved
Every April, we work together as a global TEAM of families, clinicians, researchers, partners, supporters and fans, to spread awareness into the world about neonatal and childhood acquired Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. This year, the community theme is TEAM HOPE. Our team is filled with dedicated members, and over 6,000 strong, across all ages and outcomes.
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. HIE continues to be its own unique type of NICU experience, different innings, a culture of game play all its own, with many disparities in care, communication and connection that we must continue to work together on.
We are proud to assemble our team to make this happen, and need your help to bring more team members onto the roster, rounding the bases to decreasing the incidence of HIE (2-3 per 1,000 live births), and improving the quality of life for children and families impacted by HIE. We’ve assembled all sorts of ways you can spread Awareness, Education and Support this April. We look forward to working together for a HOME RUN!
