He is also the Chair of the Virtual Health and Telemedicine program for the hospital.
 
Dr. Moore has been involved in research pertaining to the reduction in neuronal cell death (apoptosis) and improving subsequent neuroprotection after Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) in neonates through the use of Erythropoietin.
 
He also has published works focusing on gender differences in response to Erythropoietin use. Dr. Moore is currently active in clinical research at the University of Connecticut in Necrotizing  Enterocolitis (NEC), gut microbiome and human milk nutrition.

Supporting Preemie Parents in Difficult Times

As we work together through these challenging times, you may have questions about how Graham’s Foundation is supporting our preemie parent community. Fortunately, because our support programs have always been delivered virtually, we are equipped to deliver all of our programs today, tomorrow, and into the future to continue to meet the psychosocial needs of parents.

Our Care Packages offer helpful tips for self-care and navigating the NICU and going home (our supplies have been in stock since before the COVID-19 outbreak), our MyPreemie app provides critical preemie-related information and helps parents journal their NICU experience, and our three dozen trained mentors are available to lend an ear and offer words of advice and encouragement.

In such a difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are here for the most vulnerable members of our community and Graham’s Foundation is ready. We are grateful to our volunteers and the individuals and industry partners who make generous donations that enable us to develop and deliver our support programs.

In Gratitude,

Nicholas Hall, Founder
