Where You're Born Matters- Using an Equity Lens to Elevate Breastfeeding Support and Care

Bias – we all have it, but how did we get it, and what do we do with it? Building awareness on the role and impact of unconscious bias is critical for providers to understand how to best engage the movement to advance equity and address disparities in breastfeeding support and care. Attendees will learn what inherent bias is and the role our brain plays in this judgment-based decision making. Join the discussion on strategies to remove this barrier from our practice and to create environments where a mother’s informed feeding choice can be best supported.
