Cost is $25.

The rest of the day is dedicated to Breastfeeding Managment & Counseling for the Health Care Team, an education day for all health care team members from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The event provides lactation training for health care providers to address breastfeeding management needs in hospitals, clinics, community, and tribal settings.
