Dr. Nancy Adrianna Garofalo is a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner at the NorthShore University HealthSystem and a Senior Clinician Researcher at the Pritzker School of Medicine, University of Chicago. She received a BSN from Loyola University, an MS in Nursing Administration from Aurora University, an MSN in the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner specialty from Rush University, and later a PhD from Rush University. She recently spear-headed the development of a web-based teaching module, so that nurses and physicians could learn about SUPC prevention and then provide this teaching to parents. She has published 2 papers on SUPC prevention in medical journals and a third is under review in a nursing journal. In collaboration with physicians from the University of Chicago, she will soon begin a study to measure outcomes post-implementation of this training module.
