Our next Central Coast Breastfeeding Coalition business meeting will be held at the Grover Beach WIC Clinic. Thank you Dawn Wilt for setting this up. We have not had a meeting in south county yet, and we thought it's about time.
We will primarily be discussing our upcoming May 19th conference with Dr. Paula Meier, who will present on, "Breastfeeding the Preterm Infant: Bridging the Gap From Hospital to Home". In addition, we will have a treasurer update, holiday party discussion, 2017 education topics options, and a recap of our very successful October Milk Drive.
This meeting will be a potluck, so please bring a main dish, side dish, or dessert. Plates, utensils, and beverages will be provided.
