Hi everyone! YOU ARE INVITED TO MEMPHIS!
The Memphis Area Lactation Consultant Association (MALCA) and the Shelby County Breastfeeding Coalition (SCBC) invite all of our Southeastern neighbors and colleagues to our Breastfeeding Update 2013 “Challenges that Compromise Breastfeeding Success” on August 7th. We are delighted to have 2 excellent and nationally recognized speakers. Dr. Diana Mayer, an expert in ankyloglossia (tongue-tie) and frenotomy, will give Pediatric Grand Rounds at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and also provide a workshop with clay tongues for providers (thanks to the support of UT Pediatrics). Following the workshop, Diana West will teach us how to “Make More Milk” (a not infrequent consequence of untreated ankyloglossia), how to breastfeed after cosmetic surgery, and how to overcome breastfeeding ambivalence.
With all of the work you all are doing to promote and support breastfeeding, you all have experienced many of these challenges, and so the content of the conference ties in nicely to your efforts. We hope you will join us, send your teammates, your staff, and your providers.
CME is provided for Grand Rounds, and nursing, CERPs, and dietitian hours will be provided for the entire day. See the attached brochure, and register online at www.MALCA4memphis.org.
NOTE: ANY PROVIDER INTERESTED IN THE FRENOTOMY WORKSHOP SHOULD RSVP TO firstname.lastname@example.org by JUNE 7TH so that Dr. Mayer has enough time to make the correct number of tongues! Space is limited!
Thanks so much for all you all do!
