We’re back from the 2022 CBC Summit, and filled to the brim with everything we learned at our very-first hybrid event!
The Summit provided the latest in lactation-related research, policies, practices and trends to 133 in-person attendees and 268 virtual attendees — and some folks created their own hybrid experience by showing up on site for part of the Summit and participating online for other parts.
This year’s Summit included several sessions focused on never-before-released data, practices applicable to clinical and hospital environments, updates on policies and first-hand birth and lactation-support experiences from families.
If you missed us this year, you can still watch all of the session recordings, connect with attendees and earn up to 18 continuing education credits by registering now. The Virtual Summit Access Pass gives you full access to the Summit through the Whova App until April 30, 2022. You can register for the 2023 Summit here.
Some of what you can expect to learn when you watch the recorded sessions include:
- Preliminary data from the nationwide Pregnancy and Coronavirus Registry (PRIORITY) Study, Reproductive Health Equity and Birth Justice (RHE&BJ) CORE, and the COVID-19 Vaccination During Lactation-COVIPAL Study
- The risk and safety of COVID-19 infection and vaccination in lactation
- The complexities of the current lactation landscape of AANHPI communities, and the formation of the AANHPI Lactation Collaborative of California
- Preliminary results from 1,500 surveys of hospital birthing experiences specifically focusing on perceptions of lactation support by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) as reported through the Irth app
- Discussion of NAACHO’s Blueprint for Continuity of Care in Breastfeeding Support, and strategies for lactation support at the community level
- How establishing standards for human milk feeding in the hospital, and expanding use of human donor milk beyond the NICU benefits all infants and families
- Reimagining Maternity Care in California: SB 65 California Momnibus
- The full series of Clinical Application Track sessions by Dr. Katrina Mitchell of the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center, who busted some long-standing myths in lactation support and offered a deep dive into mastitis care.
As you can see, all three days of the Summit were filled with meaningful data but the learning doesn’t just stop there. The ability to process the information presented at the event in community with other attendees continues through the Whova app. When you register for access to the recordings, you can ask questions, provide inside and connect with fellow attendees.
