Presentations and lectures

For over 7 years, I have been serving a consultant on medication use during lactation. I had and continue to work one-on-one with lactating patients, monitor the newest research and conduct my own. I focus on practical approach and Patient Centered Care.

I conduct courses and training for medical students, medical professionals, staff members, peer supporters and parents at in person or virtual events.

Here is a list and short description of currently prepared topics. If you need more details or would like me to prepare something else for your event, please do not hesitate to contact me, I would be glad to reply –
