For our July Coalition Meeting, Overcome and Achieve: A Conversation with Trailblazers, we are honored to have our breastfeeding partners form Western Massachusetts join us for a discussion about building equity in the lactation professional field. During the conversation, two IBCLCs of color based in Western Massachusetts will share their journey to obtaining the IBCLCs credential & inspire ideas for how we can translate their success to Boston.

This meeting is part of the Coalition's larger effort to support pathways and leadership for lactation professionals of color. If you are interested in joining a work group to determine how we support the professional development of lactation counselors, please email

We'll meet on 7/22 from 6:00 to 8:00 in the Evans Seminar Room at 72 E Concord St. Dinner served & parking validated. RSVP here & reach out to with questions.
