You are invited to attend our 16th annual Kentuckiana Lactation Improvement Coalition Breastfeeding Conference for 2 separate days of learning about ethics and building community for lactation support. These days are packed with quality continuing education for lactation professionals and related fields (i.e. RN, RN, SLP, OT, PT, MD, DMD. etc) as well as community supporters (i.e. parents, advocates, peer-to-peer supporters). Each day of sessions will focus on ethical issues related to human lactation and work to build community support for every type of family. The goal of the conference is to bring lactation supporters and advocates together to continue to build community support and networks that increase lactation success rates in the Kentuckiana area.
KBN, IBLCE and RDN continuing education hours have been requested.
CERPS will include E-CERPs!
