etus and Newborn, is very important to me. I'm looking forward to continuing the collaborative research that will enhance the medical community's ability to provide the best possible care for unborn and newborn babies."

The Committee on Fetus and Newborn works closely with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), which plays an integral role in influencing practices in perinatology, the area of medicine where obstetrics and pediatrics merge. As chair, Dr. Papile will continue to nurture this relationship and work alongside Dr. Stark on the seventh edition of the AAP and ACOG-published Guidelines for Perinatal Care, the national standard of perinatal care. Dr. Stark will serve as editor and Dr. Papile will serve as associate editor.

"The mission and philosophy of the AAP is symbiotic with those of Texas Children's Hospital," said Dr. Papile. "I believe my dual responsibilities will complement each other and lead to further advances in fetal and newborn care that will ultimately create better outcomes for patients."

Available for Comment:

Dr. Papile: Neonatology, neonatal-neurodevelopment, neonatal brain injuries, preterm infants

Dr. Stark: Neonatology, newborn respiratory complications, neonatal intensive care units
