Welcome to GOLD Lactation 2021! As we enter our 15th year, we're eager to continue our work of exploring the latest research, trends, new ideas and hot topics in the world of human lactation. This is an exciting time of new research and shifts in thinking and understanding within the field. Adding to the excitement are the many new features we've recently introduced to the GOLD conferences, such as having all of our speakers on video, the incorporation of more interactive sessions to help develop critical thinking skills and shift our delegates from passive listener to active participant, and new ways to engage with our speakers in our virtual environment. Join us for an amazing program of thought-provoking topics and speakers who will expand your knowledge and skills, combined with community and connection!

Our conference for 2021 packed full of fascinating topics such as the immunology of human milk, the biology of the mammary gland, breastmilk fat profile and the implications for clinical practice, lactation support for parents with anorexia nervosa, interactive case review, overcoming the challenges of providing virtual support, clinical skills and so much more! Join speakers Nekisha Killings, Lisa Marasco, Liz Brooks, Michal Ann Young, Muswamba Mwamba, Johanna Sargeant, Rue Khosa, Diane DiTomasso, Amal Omer-Salim and so many other amazing minds for what promises to be a thought-provoking conference that will expand your knowledge and skills!
