Lactation Link Scholarship Opportunity
Our friends at Lactation Link are offering Lactation Consultant Scholarships to Black women and men who are passionate about breastfeeding support.
They were kind enough to ask us to participate - so there is now one more scholarship available! Interested? Know someone who would be a great candidate? Apply at bit.ly/LLscholarship by Thursday, September 3, 2020. Details below.
The scholarship includes an online 90-hour Lactation Consultant Enriched Training Program that certifies the learner as a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist (from Lactation Education Resources, including the required textbook).
Wondering why this scholarship is only open to Black candidates? Please read Kimberly Seals Allers’ article on "Top Five Reasons We Need a Black Breastfeeding Week" for a little information about the very real health disparities that exist for Black families. Because there are huge barriers in becoming a Lactation Consultant in the first place, Lactation Link is hoping to help clear the path for those whose voices and leadership need to be heard.
Scholarship recipients announced by 9/10/2. Apply at bit.ly/LLscholarship by Thursday, September 3, 2020.
