The Center for Women’s and Gender Equity and the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics invite the UNC campus community to attend a Virtual Panel Discussion, “The Impacts of COVID-19 on Lactation Support Access and the Experiences of Marginalized Communities”. We are excited to have four panelists share their experiences of working with marginalized populations during the time of COVID-19.

Since 2012, UNC has offered an inclusive Lactation Support Program to assist individuals to continue their lactation journey. This program is directed by Alena Clark, PhD, MPH, RDN, CLC, Professor in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics and Yvette Lucero-Nguyen, MPH, Director of the Center for Women’s and Gender Equity. The Lactation Support Program offers eight Lactation Stations throughout campus where individuals can express their milk in a private place, a lactation support policy for students, staff and faculty and a privacy screen rental program. We have had over 2,000 visits to our Lactation Stations in the past eight years!

For information on upcoming virtual lactation support groups, check out our blog on the Virtual Lactation Peer Support Groups.
