On Tuesday August 2nd from 7-8 am we are offering a fantastic sounding virtual CME, titled Supporting Breastfeeding Families: Implementing a Primary Care Office Strategy. Our speaker, Dr. Jody Cousins may be a familiar name as she used to practice in Anacortes and while there developed a wonderful system for supporting her families with their lactation needs while also getting at least some reimbursement. This hour long CME will start with a didactic portion by Dr. Cousins that includes how you can set up such a program in your facility. Her teaching is of course evidence based and practical. There will be time for questions and discussion at the end.
If you would have liked to but have been unable to attend the CME’s we have been offering please take a moment to send me a quick email with topics days and times that would be preferable in the future.
Other highlights from this issue include World Breastfeeding Month Activities and Opportunities, links to a variety of lactation support evidence based practices, new from Washington's Health Care Authority, and an update on happenings at Help Me Grow Skagit.
As Skagit’s “Physician Champion” please remember that I am here to help facilitate connections between your practice and community support services. I can be reached anytime with questions and feedback at email@example.com.
