    OUR GUEST:  Dawn Miller-Hanna, RN, BSN, RN-NIC, CKC
    Dawn has been a Registered Nurse in the NICU since 1988.
    Dawn became passionate about Kangaroo Care after she obtained her Developmental Care Specialist Certification in 2014. She learned that Kangaroo Care was a vital aspect of helping the preterm infant survive and thrive in the NICU's harsh environment. She obtained the Kangaroo Caregiver Certification in 2015 from the United States Institute of Kangaroo Care presented by Dr. Susan Ludington-Hoe.
    Dawn was instrumental in developing a robust Kangaroo Care policy for her hospital, including being involved in the International Kangaroo-a-thon and Kangaroo Care Awareness Day.
    In 2016 Dawn presented a lecture for University Medical Center of Southern Las Vegas on the concept of Kangaroo Care. That same year she also presented information about Kangaroo Care  to the Northern Nevada Maternal Child Coalition in Reno Nevada.
    Dawn is the author of the book entitled the ABC's of Kangaroo Care: Everything You Wanted to Know About Kangaroo Care. This book highlights many of the benefits of KC with references to justify the benefits.
    Dawn loves to share her knowledge of Kangaroo Care to others.
