Mona Liza Hamlin is the nurse manager of Perinatal Resources and Community Programs for the Women & Children’s service Line at Christiana Care Hospital in Newark, Delaware. She also serves as Past-Chair to the United States Breastfeeding Committee, is a founding member of the National Association of Professional & Peer Lactation Supporters of Color, is a member of the Delaware Healthy Mother & Infant Consortium, and is a board member for the Breastfeeding Coalition of Delaware. In her work, she strives to ensure that all mothers have access to a full scope of perinatal care, support, and resources.

During “Breastfeeding as a Preventative Care Change Model: How to Affect Change”, we’ll explore the powerful impact of breastfeeding. Mona Liza will delve into how linking breastfeeding and human milk in efforts made outside of the field of lactation will improve overall efforts to improve maternal-child health. She’ll also invite us to consider how we can engage with non-traditional stakeholders and make connections where breastfeeding isn’t traditionally included.

To take your conference experience even further, we also offer the option of including Breastfeeding and Medically Complex Infants  and Complex Medical Issues in the Lactating Parent each with 6 hours of focused lectures.
