The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund appreciates the support of Prolacta Bioscience and Hand to Hold for this important event
and welcomes other experts, influencers, and sponsors who share our mutual mission. 


The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund is seeking sponsorship partners to support our one-day regional conference about Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC), entitled Speaking of NEC: Unplugged. We have sponsorship levels ranging from $1,000 up to $3,500.

As a partner, your company will receive exposure through printed and digital materials, social media, on-site marketing and more!

Your sponsorship funding will aid in our efforts to educate our attendees about the full continuum of NEC: its impact on patients and their parents, the cost to the hospitals that treat it, and methods to improve both its short and long-term outcomes.

We anticipate 100 attendees for our conference hailing from Central Texas and beyond including: parents, patient advocates, neonatologists, clinicians, researchers, medical and nursing students, media, policy makers, and the public at large. 






Our overarching goals for the conference are to:

  • EDUCATE attendees about NEC and its impact on their community

  • SPARK interest in the disease and discussion among attendees

  • INSPIRE community engagement and action in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of NEC.

Gold Level—$3,500

Silver Level—$2,500

Bronze Level—$1,000

The Morgan Leary Vaughan Fund (Morgan’s Fund) emerged from a need to establish a mechanism for:

  • Disseminating credible and timely information about Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) to parents whose infants are most at risk for developing NEC

  • Raising the level of public awareness about NEC and the potentially devastating effects it can have on infants and their families

  • Advancing research to prevent, diagnose, treat, and ultimately, cure NEC.

Currently, it is headquartered in Naugatuck, Connecticut with a satellite office in Austin, Texas.
