Ashley Randolph - The NICU Advocate
Ashley Randolph saw a strong need to change the conversation when it comes to how Black NICU Families are treated in the NICU, at home and in school. Systemic racism is prevalent in every setting for these families and sets the stage for a vulnerable infant to grow into a child witnessing healthcare, therapeutic and educational environments that are inadequate in terms of racial and healthy equity. Ashley Randolph: Ashley is the African American mother of 3 preemies, founder of GLO Preemies (www.GloPreemies.org), co-Founder of the Alliance for Black NICU Families and Chair to California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative.
