OUR COMMITMENT TO INCREASING DIVERSITY IN THE FIELD: RISING TIDE LACTATION EQUITY SCHOLARSHIP
LER recognizes that for aspiring IBCLCs, one of the greatest obstacles to entering the field is financial. We also know that there aren’t nearly as many Black IBCLCs as there needs to be.


As a part of our continued commitment to increasing diversity in the field, Lactation Education Resources is proud to announce our Rising Tide Lactation Equity Scholarship program, which is designed to remove the financial burden of pursuing the IBCLC credential.



In addition to our existing scholarships, we are adding start-to-certification support for two aspiring Black IBCLCs, from lactation training to clinical hours to exam fees. For one awardee, health science coursework will be offered through Walden University. Get the details andapply today [https://www.lactationtraining.com/risingtide?utm_source=August_Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=august].





HOW HUMAN MILK “PROGRAMS” BABIES . . . AND PARENTS!
Epigenetics is a hot topic these days and discussed more and more in the lactation world - but what IS it? Why is it relevant to the perinatal period? And as experts in lactation, how should we understand and explain the role human milk might play in “programming” the epigenome?


Laurel Wilson, IBCLC, RLC, BSc, CLE, CLD is an experienced lactation consultant and speaker on perinatal health topics. Her new Lactation Education Resources class shares leading-edge research discoveries in the exciting new field of epigenetics. These discoveries are changing how we think about human milk.
