During the month of April, Hope for HIE will be championing the HIE Awareness Month campaign online, and regionally, to promote awareness, education and, most importantly, support.

Two to three of every 1,000 live births are impacted by Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy, or HIE, a type of brain injury.

More sustain an HIE injury after birth, due to multiple reasons, including near SIDS events and cardiac arrest. HIE often leads to diagnoses of cerebral palsy, epilepsy, learning disabilities, hearing and vision impairments, ADHD, and other developmental challenges.
