Update 14 March – delighted to confirm Jonathan Ashworth MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health, will joining our conference speaking on The importance of breastfeeding and early years.
We are delighted to announce the date for our breastfeeding conference – 19 April 2018 in London.
This event is joint hosted by the Royal Society for Public Health and the Institute for Health Visiting.
Given that breastfeeding is one of the most powerful factors in infant health, and that statistically the UK shows some of the lowest rates worldwide, this issue is a public heath priority. This conference is for all health visitors and those, working with or alongside them, with a need to better understand how we increase breastfeeding rates.
The conference programme is designed to illustrate the need for support and show examples of what integrated services can achieve in the community. The World’s Breastfeeding Trends initiative findings and recommendations which will be shared during the day can strengthen health visitor practice and improve public health if implemented.
This conference will be of value to Directors of Public Health, Health Visitors, GPs, Midwives, Commissioners, Children’s services staff and many others interested in breastfeeding and its role in health improvement.
5 CPD credits available for attendees.
