Earlier this week, on behalf of the AHA, I presented the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) a plaque commemorating the milestone training of the three millionth provider for the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP).
For more than two decades, the NRP of the AAP has set a national standard and an international example for training in the resuscitation of the newborn. AHA has been involved with neonatal resuscitation since its origin in 1987, through relationships with AAP and AHA volunteers. The association formally entered into an agreement with AAP to support NRP in 1998. This year marks the 25th year of the NRP!
We are so proud that we have been able to work hand in hand with AAP to support this lifesaving program. We congratulate them on their achievements and hope for many years of future collaboration toward our shared goal of improving care and outcomes for neonatal resuscitation.
