Elizabeth Goetz, MD, MPH, Receives Meriter Foundation Award

Elizabeth Goetz, MD, MPH, received an award of $8,000 from the Meriter Foundation for her project, “Improving Quality of Care and Lowering Costs by Reducing NICU Admissions.” This project aims to develop and evaluate a nursing education program that will enable healthy full term infants at high risk for neonatal sepsis to be cared for in the Normal Newborn Nursery. Dr. Goetz seeks to increase the quality of care delivered to these newborns by keeping them with their families, and decrease the costs of caring for these infants in the NICU.
