WPP’s NICU Program highlighted in Cardinal Glennon Magazine

Our NICU program, highlighted in Cardinal Glennon Magazine, is making a significant impact on addressing Dominica’s high neonatal mortality rate. Collaborating with local healthcare partners and local Neonatologist Dr. Seannel David, and supported by WPP, Rotary International, and Dr. Colleen Claassen, the program includes observerships for Dominican nurses in St. Louis. This initiative is part of WPP’s Eastern Caribbean Neonatal Program, targeting Dominica’s 28 per-1000 births neonatal mortality rate. Dr. Claassen’s consistent visits since 2018 provide crucial clinical coaching, contributing to systemic changes and efforts to save infants’ lives. The program emphasizes regional capacity building and training for local healthcare professionals.
