GOLD Lactation Conference News
GOLD keynote presentations are a great opportunity for delegates and the general public alike to connect with some of the top speakers in the field. Our closing keynote presentation is an excellent wrap-up to our events. Keynotes are presented live twice and then are available as recordings on our website to watch at your convenience.
GOLD Lactation 2017’s Closing Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Karleen Gribble. Dr. Gribble is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Western Sydney University, a member of the Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies Core Group, and an Australian Breastfeeding Association Community Educator and Breastfeeding Counsellor. Her career has included work in: adoptive breastfeeding, long-term breastfeeding, child protection and breastfeeding, peer-to-peer milk sharing, and the parenting and care of maltreated children.
In this closing keynote entitled, “Infant and young child feeding in emergencies: Background, best practice, and what you can do,” Dr. Gribble will discuss how to best provide care to some of our most vulnerable individuals. We’ll hear why infants and children are particularly at risk during emergencies. Dr. Gribble will outline ways in which aid has the potential to either support or undermine health. Participants will have the opportunity to explore how they can become strong and educated advocates for appropriate infant feeding in times of emergency.
Join us live on May 1 at 13:00 UTC and again at 23:00 UTC to hear Dr. Karleen Gribble. The recording of this presentation will be available on our website for the general public until May 15, and to registered delegates until June 27. As always, GOLD Annual Members enjoy an additional two weeks to view recordings.

We’re thrilled to have Dr. Amy Brown as this year’s Opening Keynote Speaker. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Health, Policy and Social Sciences at Swansea University in the UK. Dr. Brown’s work focuses on the psychological, cultural, and societal barriers to breastfeeding. Her professional achievements include publishing over 50 papers and her recent book ‘Breastfeeding Uncovered: Who really decides how we feed our babies’.
During her presentation, “Breastfeeding as a public health issue: How we need to tackle cultural and societal barriers to protect breastfeeding,” Dr. Brown will offer insights into her experiences and her work. She’ll examine the reasons why breastfeeding is a public health issue and how we can help to shift society’s perceptions in this area. Delegates will hear about psychological, social, and cultural factors which damage responsive breastfeeding. Dr. Brown will discuss factors from hospital practices to public attitudes, including their impact on breastfeeding and weaning rates.
This keynote presentation will take place live on April 3 at 16:00 UTC and again at 22:00 UTC . The recording will be available to the public until April 17, and to registered delegates until June 2. GOLD Annual Members receive two additional weeks of viewing time.
