There will be a Networking Event held the evening before the training September 16, 2019 from 7pm-9pm. If you are attending the training, we would love to have you join us for this optional event. It will be a time to get to know the State WIC Breastfeeding staff including the Regional Lactation Consultants and a time for information sharing and fun.
