ABM 24th annual international meeting 

The 24th Annual International Meeting presented by the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine features world-class speakers providing cutting-edge research and clinical information on current issues in breastfeeding medicine, spanning both maternal and child health. This year's meeting is the first to be hosted in the United Kingdom and will be held October 16-19, 2019. Physicians, registered nurses, lactation consultants and other professionals will have the opportunity to continue their professional education in a highly respected, stimulating environment, while earning continuing education credits. 

ABM's Annual Meeting is the ideal context to engage in innovative workshops, address evolving issues and connect with an international organization of clinicians devoted to the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding.
