I didn’t end up sending in an abstract to speak at last year’s event, but someone just shared the Save The Date flyer with me for the UNC’s Breastfeeding and Feminism Symposia for 2013. Next year’s theme is: “It Takes A Village: The role of the greater community in inspiring and empowering women to breastfeed.” I […]
It was an honor to be asked to speak at the first ever ROSE Summit at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA, this year. To be among people who are committed to eradicating the disparities that plague our ‘sisters everywhere,’ and address the issues in breastfeeding rates, is necessary and inspiring.

I don’t think I could be more excited about this, than if I was on the planning committee myself. But wait, I am!

I got that email — the one that starts out very friendly but inevitably ends with “Thanks, but no thanks”! It’s OK. I can live with it. I’m sure they had a very large pool of great choices. I have to admit that […]

For a moment I thought of submitting and abstract until I saw that the presentations […]
I submitted my proposal to the ILCA in time to speak at the 2012 Conference in Florida! So now it’s just a waiting game — well, at least until November 6th when they will, through email, notify those who have been chosen to speak, present, give a workshop or whatever other entrants have decided to do. I […]
