In this episode of CHOC Radio, we speak with Karina Ousley, a clinical social worker in CHOC’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Diana Hurtado, coordinator for the March of Dimes NICU Family Support program at CHOC, and Marla Dorsey, patient- and family-centered care coordinator, about the importance of NICU parents practicing self care.
