www.BreastfeedingROSE.org/2015Summit

In 2012, Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere (ROSE) first breastfeeding summit presented the barriers to breastfeeding within the African American community and the importance of reclaiming the tradition. In 2013, we evolved the conversation to Organizing for Action: An African American Breastfeeding Campaign where we demonstrated the importance of empowering communities. Last year, we encouraged a movement entitled Black Health Matters: A Breastfeeding Movement which addressed the way the work must be done in order stimulate a larger system change. This year we are focusing on Building Bridges Across the Chasm of Breastfeeding Inequities. There is an immense need for unified collaborative work among providers across the spectrum of care for infants, mothers, families, and communities.

We invite you to attend our 2015 Breastfeeding Summit, to be a voice in this discussion, and continue to drive the needle forward towards health equity.

Summit Profile

In the past, the summit audience has included physicians, nurses, nutritionist, social workers, grassroots organizations, community health workers, researchers, lactation consultants, peer counselors, federal, state and local government staff, mothers, and breastfeeding coalitions.
Summit attendees come from all over the United States.
The 2015 summit will be held at the Louder Milk Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The daily schedule will includes breaks for networking.

Lactation Management /Exam Preparation Course Cleveland 2015

The original Lactation Consultant Exam Review / Lactation Management Course, in its 25th season, developed by IBLCE Founder and author of Comprehensive Lactation Consultant Exam Review Linda J. Smith.
The 2015 Dayton course will be held Sept. 14-19, 2015 at Lakewood Hospital and is approved for a total of 45 CERPs.

The Lactation Management and Exam Preparation Course is a comprehensive review of the skills and knowledge needed for evidence-based professional lactation consultant practice. The course will help prepare candidates for the certification examination sponsored by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE).

Six days of instruction and three graded clinical exercises to be completed independently conclude with a practice examination to identify strengths and gaps in skill and knowledge areas. Interactive activities, clinical slides and videos, and skill-building techniques create a uniquely warm and supportive learning environment. This course was the first to be based on the IBLCE Exam Blueprint and is the longest-running course of its kind.

Dates and Location
Sept. 14-19, 2015 at Lakewood Hospital, Cleveland OH. Lakewood is providing meeting room space for this course. The hospital is NOT responsible in any way for any aspect of the course content, tuition, or registration. Please DO NOT contact the hospital for course information. Meals and lodging are available nearby, and contact numbers and more information will be sent with registration confirmations.

Three clinical exercises totaling 9 hours of independent study must be submitted before the last day of the course. A list of recommended exercises will be sent when registration is received.

If your organization would like to provide this course to a substantial number of participants, it may make sense to sponsor this course at your facility. Contact Linda Smith for details.

This training is perfect for those who have been working with breastfeeding families and are ready to expand their repertoire of skills and knowledge. We are thrilled to be able to welcome Marsha Walker to Washington State! Her ‘Just One Bottle Won’t Hurt!” – or Will It?’ gets to the gut of the matter as she shares more information about the implications for the immune system and the delicate, infant microbiome. And, Melissa Cole has agreed to come back to share more of her expertise in infant feeding with us! The second half of the day will use case studies and activities to practice and build competence around lactation support.
