Stay Connected Through NICU Reunions
Attention NICU graduates! There is a reunion every year for all of the ones that have graduated from the NICU at UAMS and their families to attend.
If you would like your child’s photo to be a part of our virtual Wall of Hope, you can email a picture of them when they were in the NICU and one of them now! You can also send a picture of them now, holding a picture of when they were in the NICU (how cute)! UamsNicuReunion@uams.edu
