A full week devoted to celebrating the inspired and dedicated work of Neonatal Therapists runs from September 16 through 22.
Online PR News – 17-September-2018 – Cincinnati, OH – The National Association of Neonatal Therapists (NANT) has announced the arrival of International Neonatal Therapy Week (INTW). This annual 7-day period is sponsored by the National Association of Neonatal Therapists, its Corporate Partners and others.
This is a week on the calendar that shines a well-deserved spotlight on the vital work of the world's Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech Language Pathologists who support infants and families in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Current association Members receive unannounced thank-you gestures from Corporate Partners and NANT throughout the week, all designed to inform, inspire, and support, as they continue their tireless efforts in the health and development of those in their care.
NANT members and non-members alike are encouraged to generate excitement about this weeklong global celebration by downloading a free poster to hang in their NICU. Posters are available here.
"NICU families and colleagues who work with neonatal therapists every day have come to understand just how special these individuals are, and this week is an ideal time to recognize them with surprise gifts, team lunches, or incentives," said Sue Ludwig, NANT President. "Their work is elemental and transformative, and we want the world to join us in celebrating them during INTW."
International Neonatal Therapy Week participants are invited to share their celebratory photos on social media using the #INTW hash tag.
"When we started this annual event 6 years ago, we knew it would become something special, and it's so gratifying to see the way the rest of the world joins in to honor these professionals," said Ludwig.
