Welcome to Jeff Udell's Page
What is Jeff doing?:
On August 5, 2023, I will be participating in the 2023 Pedaling for Preemies – Ride for Noah and the Brigham. This Noah guy is an amazing kid and we are all fortunate to be able to meet him thanks to Brigham and Women's NICU.
Noah was born at 26 weeks on August 9, 2018, weighing 1.5lbs. He spent 4 months in the NICU at the Brigham and we are grateful to every doctor, nurse, respiratory therapists, and many other dedicated staff for saving his life and the amazing care he received while there and after through the NICU Follow Up Clinic. Noah is finishing his second year of pre-school, where he has made lots of friends and is even getting ready to graduate from Speech Therapy! He continues to be very active and keeps us all on our toes chasing him around!
About the Brigham and Women’s NICU:
BWH has a state-of-the-art Level III NICU, the largest high-risk delivery service in New England, and provides expert newborn care for more than 3,000 premature and seriously ill babies and their families each year.
The medical team includes resident physicians, physician’s assistants and nurse practitioners, fellows (pediatricians training to become specialists in newborn medicine) and attending neonatologists who are dedicated to providing the very best and most advanced care possible to newborns with critical and unique health challenges. In addition to the medical team, the group is composed of respiratory therapists, social workers, speech and language specialists, chaplains, lactation consultants, NICU family support specialists, nutritionists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, physical therapists, and unit coordinators.
Each baby is assigned to a team designed to meet his or her specific needs. The BWH NICU teams practice family-centered care and strongly encourage parents to participate in the care of their infant. NICU team members provide parents with daily updates and are available to meet as a multidisciplinary team with families for more extended discussions regarding their baby’s progress.
