Webcam Service Enables Parents To Have “Virtual Visits” With Their Newborns In The NICU

Being apart from your newborn while he or she is cared for the in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) can be heart-wrenching. To make the separation a little bit easier, The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ, has introduced an innovative system that allows parents and extended family members to conduct “virtual visits” with their little ones via webcam.

“We recognize how stressful it is for parents and other family members to have a hospitalized infant under any circumstance,” said, Carmela Pane’, MD, Director of Neonatology at Valley. “To be able to log on to the computer and watch their baby has really been wonderful for parents who cannot be with their baby as much as they would like. And it underscores our goal of providing the highest level of patient- and family-centered care.”

The technology, called NicView™, allows parents, family and friends to view their infant in real-ti

Rutgers Medical Students Care For Area Poor And Homeless

Stephanie Oh knows what it’s like to live at the poverty line. After graduating college with a degree in bioengineering, she volunteered for AmeriCorps and subsisted on food stamps. “This experience made me better understand the struggles people face trying to live healthy on a limited income,” says Oh, now a medical and doctoral student in neuroscience at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, NJ.

Today, Oh puts her knowledge of medicine and indigent and homeless populations into practice as the student director of the Promise Clinic, an initiative that provides primary health care for clients of Elijah’s Promise Community Kitchen in New Brunswick.

The Promise Clinic, founded in 2005, is one project under the medical school’s Homeless and Indigent Population Health Outreach Project (HIPHOP), which fosters relationships between medical students and the local commu
