We are proud to announce…
We are now expanding the
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®) Care Award
to include Community Based Agencies.
The International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBLCE®) and the International Lactation Consultant Association™ (ILCA™) developed this IBCLC Care Award to recognize and promote facilities that hire and employ those who are an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) as part of their commitment to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
The IBCLC Care Award program is expanding now to include Community-Based Health Agencies that currently staff those certified as an IBCLC! Agencies will be able to apply online to become a recognized IBCLC Care Award agency and be included in the IBCLC Care Directory.
Back in 2010, we began accepting our first applications for the hospital program and now, just three years later, it’s been so successful that we are expanding the annual IBCLC Care Award to include those agencies in the community setting whose staff includes those who are certified as an IBCLC . To date, the number of hospital applications received annually has been staggering and definitely has exceeded everyone’s expectations giving us all the more reason to expand the award in 2013 to include the Community Agencies.
This Community Based award application process for this year is NOW OPEN and will be closing on the March 22, 2013. Successful agencies will be notified in May 2013.
Don’t delay! Have those certified as an IBCLC and your Community Agency globally recognized by receiving this award. This prestigious IBCLC Care Award requires only a nominal administration fee and application forms are online.
