Greetings. My name is Barbara L. Philipp, MD. I am a Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine, in Boston, MA, USA, a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and a Fellow of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. I believe that we no longer need to convince new mothers about breastfeeding - they know. Now we need all hands on deck to support them, whether it be more Lactation Consultants or more knowledgeable doctors and nurses and citizens.
I found some funders who agreed with this sentiment and generously supported the start of The Lactation College. Here we go …
The first semester course - on topics about lactation, breastfeeding and breast milk - runs from January 1, 2021 until April 30, 2021. Classes, in the form of newsletters, will be posted on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The goal of this first project of The Lactation College is to present information in a concise and clear way to help candidates pass the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) examination. Any others who are interested in learning more about lactation, breastfeeding and breast milk are also welcome to join. Subscribe to get full access to the class-of-the-day newsletter. Email addresses are not shared. The course is free.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By subscribing, every new post of this class-of-the-day newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
