EPIC BREASTFEEDING PROGRAM


The 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.
