Miris Interviews

Alongside our mission to make individual nutrition available globally to improve neonatal health, our goal is to create awareness, inspiration and dialogue.

One of the ways we do this is by organizing a series of interviews with our customers, partners and other prominent experts on topics relating to neonatal health and nutrition for preterm babies.
