Allison Lukens, NICU Nurse
Northwestern Prentice Women’s Hospital
Nominated by Elizabeth Nee
Alli was an amazing advocate for our son when he was in the NICU. She and the RAs encouraged the doctors to wean him off the vent so he could come home and she helped teach us how to care for him, including how to breastfeed. She also did a lot of decoration of his room, including the below piece documenting milestones. We’re still in touch with her after his discharge over 2 years ago.
