The 2017 Fall Meeting was a great success! Forty-seven adults and three babies attended. Chrissy Wiseman told us about the Lactation Center in Dallas and their work with physicians in the area; Judy Eastburn gave us a history of lactation, how the lactation consultant field developed, and what she learned over the years; Julie Stagg updated us on breastfeeding activities at DSHS. We learned how to use a racial equity tool and broke into workgroups to update the Strategic Plan. Everyone left energized and excited about promoting breastfeeding!
Several members and one husband went to the State Fair on the Friday before the Fall Meeting. It was an interesting experience. We got to look at a lot of new cars, check out spas, see lots of crafts, and eat lots of fried food! Did you know you could fry Fruit Loops?
Spring Meeting 2018 will be held in Wichita Fall, Texas. The meeting will be followed by a Moms Prom. See Spring Meeting 2018 for more information.
