During the weeks leading up to the 2013 ILCA Conference, we will be highlighting a number of conference speakers. Watch this space every Thursday for more profiles.
We are so pleased to have Dr. Howard Chilton as one of the speakers at our conference in Melbourne in just a few short weeks.
Dr Howard Chilton has been a neonatologist for 40 years. He was Director of Newborn Care at the Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney from 1978 to 1999. Since then, he has continued to fulfill a clinical and educational role there and at the Prince of Wales Private Hospital and Sydney Children’s Hospital. Dr Chilton is the author of ‘Baby on Board’ (Finch) now in its 3rd edition. He also has a new book to be published by Pan Macmillan due out late 2013.
On Friday, July 26th, at 11:00am, Dr. Chilton will be presenting a plenary session at this year’s conference entitled “Breast to Bowl: Developing Good Taste”. This session will focus on how we introduce foods to young children and how it impacts their preferences as they grow older.
In addition, he will be presenting two sessions, sharing from his wealth of knowledge and experience. Plan now to attend the following sessions:
Concurrent Session on Friday, July 26
