Lactation specialists around the world are engaged in the critical work of protecting, promoting, and supporting lactation. Whether you engage in advocacy at the local, national, or international level, ILCA’s Advocacy Track offers sessions that will help you be an effective change agent.
New this year, the goals and objectives of the annual Global Partner Meeting have been woven into the Advocacy Track. This track (which offers continuing education credits) includes plenaries and breakout sessions and is designed to connect you to the people and ideas that you need in your changemaker toolbox.
One highlight of this new track is the 2017 Global Partners Panel:
Furthering the Global Breastfeeding Agenda through Local, National, Regional, and International Advocacy*
Arun Gupta of the Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India
Zoe Faulkner of the Lactation Consultants of Great Britain
Rosalie Sarasua of the Association Québécoise des consultantes en lactation diplômées de l’IBLCE.
Date: Friday, 21 July
