Exhibiting at the Triangle Breastfeeding Alliance conference on April 20th, 2017

Please consider staffing a NC Breastfeeding Coalition-related exhibit or an exhibit of any other programs which would be of interest to the lactation community at the Triangle Breastfeeding Alliance conference on April 20th, 2017, at the WakeMed Andrews Center on New Bern Avenue. We are excited about our upcoming conference – this is our 15th year! Here are the topics that will be presented:

  • Increasing Milk Supply
  • Collaboration Works
  • Understand Breastfeeding Support Provided by the WIC Program
  • Milk Banking and Milk Sharing
  • Tongue and Lip Ties: Assessment, Intervention and Collaboration

We do not have any for-profit exhibitors at our conferences; but instead allow time for our approximately 150 participants to network and interact with breastfeeding resource presenters. We are inviting people to display information about breastfeeding resources and/or research projects. You may come with a board to use on a table top or a poster on a tripod. Our call for exhibit abstracts is attached. As you can see, each presenter gets one free conference registration. However, you do need to complete the application to exhibit, please. Please submit an exhibit abstract no later than midnight on Monday, February 13th, 2017 tomary_overfield@yahoo.com

 In addition, we want to acquaint those new to the lactation community with all breastfeeding resources. If you do not wish to staff an exhibit, there will be an area where participants can pick up brochures or other handouts you might want to provide; so – if you can attend – please register online at www.wakeahec.org and bring them when you come. If you want to supply brochures but are not able to attend – please bring them to one of our TBA meetings before the conference.  As you know, we meet the first Tuesday of each month from 1 – 3 in the conference room at the WakeMed Andrews Conference Center. Alternatively, you could send them to me at my address below.

 We look forward to seeing you at the conference,
