Livia Nagy Bonnard has been one of the founding members of Right(s) beside you Association-Patient organisation for preterm infants in Hungary. The Association brings together doctors, medical professionals, policy makers, NGOs, and parents of preterm children in order to improve the quality of care. She advocates for family-centred care as an EUPATI patient expert in Hungary and Europe-wide, as part of the Faculty of FINE (Family and Infant Neurodevelopmental Education) training in Hungary and as a patient researcher on several national and international research projects. Though born in Hungary, she now lives on the French-Swiss border, so she has a deep insight into the NICU and follow-up systems in Hungary, France, and Switzerland. She is a mother of 4 children, 3 girls, and a preemie boy who was born at gestational week 27 and who lives with many challenges as consequences of his early birth. Livia is a trained nurse, she worked mostly with babies and children in cardiac departments and a CICU (cardiac intensive care unit).
