- Supply medical care, through the NorthShore Evanston Hospital Community Health Center, for 3,673 adults who lack private medical insurance.

With crucial seed funding from The Associate Board of NorthShore, Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Nancy Rodriguez, PhD, APN, is pioneering research at neonatal intensive care units around the country to study the safety and efficacy of drops of a mother’s milk placed directly into a baby’s mouth.
Along with co-investigator Michael Caplan, MD, The Auxiliary of NorthShore Chair of Pediatrics and Chief Scientific Officer, their research could impact standard clinical practice worldwide and potentially increase the survival rate of premature infants.
“We are honored to support this groundbreaking research project and hope others will join us,” said Emily Laipple, President of The Associate Board, whose grant enabled Dr. Rodriguez to begin the multicenter study.
