Save the Date! Our 2018 Annual Conference will be on Friday, February 9, 2018 at Tampa General Hospital.
The Tampa Bay Breastfeeding Task Force’s third annual conference theme, “Overcoming Obstacles,” seeks to explore the issues impacting breastfeeding and to create dialogues on potential solutions. We invite researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to submit abstracts for sessions that address a topic related to overcoming breastfeeding obstacles at the local, regional, national, or global level.
We welcome topics from a wide range of perspectives, including breastfeeding inequalities and inequities, breastfeeding knowledge, access, and experiences, innovative approaches to promoting breastfeeding, socio-emotional aspects of breastfeeding and human milk, the ethics of breastfeeding support, and others.
We ask that proposed session abstracts:
1) identify a breastfeeding issue,
2) discuss what steps were taken, or are proposed, to address this issue, and
3) suggest future paths for professionals and parents interested in breastfeeding.
Abstracts should be 100-300 words long and include a title, full name, organizational affiliation, city, and contact email. Abstracts should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15, 2017.
The Tampa Bay Breastfeeding Task Force is a non-profit advocacy group whose mission is to support, promote, and protect breastfeeding in Tampa Bay. More information about the Task Force and its goals can be found at http://www.tbbreastfeeding.org.
