Anne Ades, MD, is the Director of Neonatology Medical Education at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Dr. Ades is very involved in developing educational activities related to resuscitation skills and strategies. These activities include both “mock codes” with patient simulators and “code-debriefing” sessions.

She is a regional trainer for the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) and is a member of the NRP Steering Committee.
