Learning with the Expert: A Dialogue with Dr. Matthew Grossman

Date: February 25th, 2021

Overview: Road to Resilience, in partnership with the Yurok Wellness Coalition and the Hoopa Tribal Court, will be hosting community forums to discuss how everyone can work together to support Tribal families, prevent the separation of families, and reduce prenatal substance exposure.

Learning Objectives: Dr. Matthew Grossman, together with his colleagues at Yale University, pioneered several changes in the care of infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome to reduce infants’ length of stay in the hospital. They transitioned from their usual practice to a focus on the “tasks for infants” of managing eat, sleep and console. Dr. Grossman will share the approach developed at Yale and their results.
