News and Updates!
🎓 My university published a blog post I wrote today: https://gradschool.umd.edu/about-us/blog/4173
🇯🇵 This time next month I’ll be in Japan presenting my poster, “Breastfeeding without nursing: Reasons for initiation and cessation of exclusively pumping human milk,”. I found out what poster of distinction means: top 15% 🎉. You can find all the abstracts for the conference here: https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/pdf/10.1089/bfm.2018.29100.abstracts (I’m poster P-62, if you want to find me).
👩💻I was accepted to present “Breastfeeding Without Nursing: Why do some breastfeeders exclusively pump and what can we do to support them?” at the GOLD Online Lactation Conference next April. This is a HUGE online conference (over 2800 people register 😲) and where loads of lactation care providers advance their knowledge and get their continuing education credits. It’s an exciting opportunity!
