GOLD Lactation Conference News

The just concluded 2022 GOLD Lactation Conference kicked off on April 4, 2022 with our Free Live Keynote Presentation and was followed by a series of "Live Days" held over the following weeks. 

Over 4500 attendees from all around the world, across various time zones tuned in to watch live presentations by 28 renowned experts. Apart from professional presentations, attendees also got a chance to have some fun with the Mandela Colouring Pages, GOLDen Hour Virtual Yoga and Zumba. 

The GOLD networking session gave attendees the opportunity to expand their network and connect with other professionals from around the world. Attendees have the opportunity to share experiences and learn about lactation practices in other parts of the world.

We interviewed one of our long-term attendees, Morgan Scarborough, to discuss her experience and what impact the GOLD Lactation Conference has had on her career as an IBCLC.
