Two Great Neonatology Web Resources


Neonatal Research Blog - Author: Dr. Keith Barrington
Dr.Barrington is a neonatologist and clinical researcher and chief of service at Sainte Justine University Health Center in Montréal and Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Montréal. The blog contains excerpts and thoughtful critique of recently published articles in neonatology often with insight into previously existing knowledge in the particular topic. Definitely worth a busy neonatologist’s time.
