EPIC BREASTFEEDING PROGRAM
EPIC Breastfeeding Program offers peer-to-peer breastfeeding education
to physician’s offices, hospitals and residency programs. Our goal is to
educate physicians and their staff on breastfeeding and inform them as
to why they play a critical role in a woman’s decision to breastfeed and
to continue breastfeeding. We provide information on evidence-based
standards of how to encourage, promote and support breastfeeding. We
also give out information on how to access lactation and support
services in the community and free resources for patient education. The 1
hour program not only provides great information to the staff but
attendees will receive continuing educational credits.
