"The infants and families who see your Neonatal Therapy staff every day have come to understand just how special these individuals are, so this week is an ideal time to recognize them with surprise gifts, celebratory lunches, or incentives," said Sue Ludwig, NANT President. "Their work is transformative, and it's essential to appreciate that all year long, but especially during INTW."

International Neonatal Therapy Week participants are invited to share their celebratory photos via Twitter using the #INTW hash tag, and you can follow NANT on Twitter at @nanttweets. "When we started this annual event 5 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.
