Where Our Community Comes Together

Our annual breastfeeding conference in Kansas is a two-day event every October that’s one part celebration, one part education, and one part organizing. Here, we work together to build a world full of communities where breastfeeding is supported. Every year we look back on our progress and plan for the future.

 

The first day of our conference focuses on “hot topics” in lactation and provides clinical skills and breastfeeding knowledge for healthcare professionals and others who serve families. During the second day, we focus on building the capacity of local breastfeeding coalitions.

Featuring expert speakers, panel discussions, and opportunities to get involved in local breastfeeding advocacy, this event is a can’t-miss opportunity.
