Welcome to the Call for Abstracts for NANT 15
Presented by the National Association of Neonatal Therapists (NANT)

Conference Dates:
Main Conference: March 28-29, 2025
Pre-Conference: March 27, 2025
Location: Indianapolis, IN, USA*

Dear colleagues,

The NANT 15 theme reflects our mission to elevate the trajectory of neonatal development, starting with life in the NICU and beyond. But this cannot happen in a vacuum, and babies do not flourish in isolation.

As neonatal therapists, we begin with the end in mind: healthy babies and families Thrive Together! (And so do we.)

Implementing this theme in real life requires our community’s collective determination, collaboration, and professional strengths.

As OTs, PTs, and SLPs, our academic preparation, scopes of practice, roles, and skill sets are firmly rooted in development throughout the lifespan. As neonatal therapists, we have the privilege, responsibility, and opportunity to influence the earliest stages of development. We protect, support, and promote the healthiest beginnings during this critical period.

As a potential speaker or poster presenter at NANT 15, what clinical initiatives, research, and practices have improved developmental outcomes in your NICU, hospital system, state, or country? How might your advances help your colleagues?

Sharing your valuable work at this internationally attended conference is a powerful way to help your tiny patients, their families, and our community thrive together.

We invite you to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation at NANT 15.

Best regards,

Jenene W. Craig PhD, MBA, OTR/L, CNT Christy Cliniak, PhD, OTR/L, CNT, CPXP, NTMTC
