Terrie Inder, MBChB, MD, is an internationally renowned researcher, neonatologist and pediatric neurologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, with over 20 years in the field of Neonatology. As chair of the department of pediatric newborn medicine, Dr. Inder is leading the development of an innovative NICU that promotes family-centered care. As one colleague writes, “She believes compassionate care—delivered in the right way, at the right time, by the right people—is just as vital to an infant’s survival and success as the medicine and devices doctors use to treat them. For this reason, she is changing the way doctors all over the world treat high-risk infants.” Although she leads the department which cares for nearly 3,000 premature and seriously ill babies each year while continuing her groundbreaking research, she still makes time to personally meet with parents and their babies. She sits bedside, reassuring parents and counseling them about their important role in their child’s development.
