  • Clinical approaches to congenital heart disease, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation, fetal surgery for myelomeningocele repair, neonatal abstinence syndrome, and nutrition management of preterm infants.
  • Newer evidence on the treatment and management of the Congenital Infections:  Herpes Simplex Virus and Cytomegalovirus.
  • Differential diagnoses of challenging neonatal radiologic case studies.
  • Newer evidence regarding the neonatal microbiome and clinical applications.
  • Strategies in communication with parents regarding life and death and intensive care decisions regarding fragile NICU patients, especially in regards to Trisomy 13 and 18 patients.
