A compilation of professional and academic accomplishments and recognition in the popular press
- A Hospital Pediatrics article reporting on a clinical exam-based approach for the management of chorioamnionitis-exposed infants in the newborn nursery was honored by the journal's editorial board with the Jennifer Daru Memorial Award at the annual Pediatric Hospital Medicine Conference. Co-authors of the article (published in March -- see Notable Publications) include lead author Neha Joshi, MD, Arun Gupta, MD, Ronald Cohen, MD, Bill Benitz, MD, and senior author Adam Frymoyer, MD. The Daru Award is intended to honor the manuscript the editorial board feels has the most potential to impact clinical care. Already, the local impact at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital is evident. We have significantly reduced our antibiotic usage and decreased separation of mothers and infants in the Johnson Center. The work has involved collaboration between our Neonatal Hospitalist team, who has been on the front lines of this initiative, and the Johnson Center nursing staff as well as Well Baby Nursery and Palo Alto Medical Foundation colleagues.
- Stanford faculty in the Division of Neonatology were busy at this year’s annual Pediatric Hospital Medicine (PHM) Conference in Seattle, WA from July 25 – July 28, 2019. Multiple members of the division (including Drs. Gupta, Joshi, Frymoyer, Benitz, Elizabeth Blecharczyk, MD, and Jadene Wong, MD) helped lead and facilitate a variety of mini-plenary sessions, workshops, and subcommittee meetings throughout the conference. Members of our Neonatal Hospitalist team also planned and led a Newborn Medicine pre-conference focused on Neonatal Resuscitation skills. Our faculty collaborated with others from across Stanford and from across the country in presenting sessions on a wide range of topics, including the care of late preterm infants, managing infants at risk for early onset sepsis, neonatal resuscitation, value based newborn care, and gender bias.
The annual PHM Conference offers a platform for us to share our knowledge in newborn care with the pediatric hospitalist community with the goal of improving the health and well-being of hospitalized infants and children nationwide. The PHM Conference (co-sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Academic Pediatric Association, and Society of Hospital Medicine) is the largest annual gathering each year for pediatric hospitalists and attracted over 1,600 attendees this year.
- Dr. Frymoyer was promoted on July 1, 2019 to Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine.
- Anoop Rao, MD, MS, presented work titled "Feasibility of a wearable device that continuous non-invasive BP monitor" at the Current Applications for Artificial Intelligence in Cardiology conference in San Francisco, CA, organized by the Mayo clinic. For this oral poster presentation Dr. Rao and co-authors Bill Rhine, MD, Fatima Eskandar-Afshari, DO, and neonatal-perinatal medicine fellow Caroline Yeon-Kyeong Noh, MD, won the Dr. Moskowitz Scholar award.
