“Since 1996, the Emergency Medicine Network (EMNet) mission has been to advance public health objectives through diverse projects in emergency care, particularly multicenter clinical research. In 2010, we launched an emergency room (ER) smartphone app that helps the public to quickly and accurately identify nearby ERs. We wanted to enhance the app capabilities (e.g. with information about local capabilities) but lacked the funds to do so. In 2015, we were excited to discover that EMNet and R Baby share many of the same goals, and partnered on the development of the enhanced app, findERnow. Phyllis understood the potential of this innovative way to improve pediatric emergency care. Phyllis, Andrew and Katie are  passionate about their work, and have brought great enthusiasm and creativity to our collaboration. Together with all of their other projects, it’s clear that they are making a difference! It’s an honor to be a part of R Baby’s team.”

2016 R Baby Hero: Kimberly Aldarelli

Rodan + Fields

When we first connected with Kim Aldarelli, it was because we were part of a club that no one ever hopes to join: mothers who have lost a child. Kim lost her son Michael at 11 days old in 2005.  We have shared the pain of loss, the need to help others who share our sorrow […]

“There are no words to describe the feelings I have for receiving the R Baby hero award for 2016! I believe a force greater than us has brought the Rabinowitzes and I together. I find peace knowing my son Michael is not alone, he has a friend to be with for eternity, and that friend is Rebecca. I will continue to support R Baby until the day I die. Thank you Andrew and Phyllis for everything you have done.”
