NSU Institute for Child Health Policy Director to Teach Course at International Conference on Helping Babies Breathe

Deborah Mulligan, M.D., director of NSU’s Institute for Child Health Policy

Deborah Mulligan, M.D., director of NSU’s Institute for Child Health Policy, will be teaching a course on helping babies breathe at an international pediatric conference next year. By special invitation from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Mulligan recently completed the Helping Babies Breathe Master Trainer course, which is an evidence-based educational program to teach neonatal resuscitation techniques in resource-limited areas. Mulligan will be teaching the course in Spanish at the 2011 Latin American Association of Pediatrics conference in April in Panama. The organization represents several thousand pediatricians from 22 Latin American, Caribbean and European pediatric societies.

The Helping Babies Breathe course is an initiative of the AAP in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Saving Newborn Lives, the National Institute of Child Health and Development, and a number of other global health organizations. In addition to teaching at the course at the Latin American pediatrics conference, Mulligan has also been confirmed to train the Florida Medical Association and Florida Chapter of the AAP physicians volunteering in Haiti and other developing countries.
