Congratulations to Ann Allen, MD, on her receipt of $19,000 from Cars Curing Kids for her project, "Neonatal abstinence syndrome: Implementing a novel approach". This collaborative project between UW Hospitals and Clinics/American Family Children's Hospital, UnityPoint Health-Meriter and St. Mary's hospitals aims to improve the care of infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome by decreasing average length of stay, opioid use, and hospital costs, using the Eat Sleep Console approach to gauge the infant's ability to function.
