Monica Arroyo, MD, joins the Medical Advisory Board

May 25th, 2021  | News


We are excited to welcome Dr. Monica Arroyo, pediatric neurologist, to the Medical Advisory Board bringing her expertise in neonatal neurocritical care to enhance communication and whole-family care and support as collaborations are built through the board initiatives. Her full bio is below.

Dr. Monica Arroyo is an attending Pediatric Neurologist at Joe di Maggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. Prior to this position she completed a Pediatric Neurology residency and subsequently a fellowship in Fetal and Neonatal Neurology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 2018. Her research focus is on outcomes of children with prenatally diagnosed brain conditions and other neurologic conditions diagnosed in the newborn period. In her current position she has started a dedicated Neonatal Neurology service, fetal consultation service and a high risk clinic for NICU follow up since her arrival to the institution. She is an advocate for optimizing continuity of care after the hospital and for creating safe medical homes for children with complex needs.  Dr. Arroyo is also interested in parent mental health and support and looking for ways to improve the NICU experience, as she herself is a NICU mother whose child passed away from complications of prematurity. Her training and personal experiences places her in a unique position to collaborate in research efforts for understanding ways to better support families of children lost to HIE, those living and thriving with HIE, and on HIE prevention.  Dr. Arroyo also enjoys teaching and is looking forward to new opportunities to help share knowledge and exchange ideas with parents and professionals around the world through her involvement in this platform.
