World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated from August 1 – 7 in many countries of the world. We celebrated again this year by offering to help IBCLCs, CLCs, aspiring lactation consultants, midwives, and other health professionals further their education with a number of full and half scholarships for our September – November online breastfeeding conference Inform • Improve • Impact.The scholarship includes full registration and continuing education credits. iLactation is proud to have supported health professionals from 25 countries with our Diversity scholarships since they were established in 2013.
