The Tampa Bay Breastfeeding Task Force’s fourth annual conference theme, “Building Bridges to Better Breastfeeding,” seeks to explore issues
surrounding breastfeeding and to create dialogues on potential solutions. We invite researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to submit abstractsfor talks that address a topic related
to Building Bridges to Better Breastfeeding at the local, regional, national, or global level. We welcome topics from a wide range of perspectives, ie: breastfeeding research, lactation
education, legal system, 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.
The conference will be held at Tampa General Hospital on February 15th, 2019. More details will follow.

future paths for professionals and parents interested in breastfeeding. Abstractsshould be 100-150 words long. The deadline for abstract submission is November 4,
