Breastfeeding and Lactation Symposium 2020

Join us for the 15th International Breastfeeding and Lactation Symposium in Lisbon, Portugal, from 26 to 27 March, 2020

We have been able to engage the world’s most influential breastfeeding and lactation researchers for the International Breastfeeding and Lactation Sympoisum 2020 to present their recent discoveries and updates to a select audience. An integral part of the breastfeeding research calendar, the 2020 symposium will focus on the ability of lactation science to shape and impact clinical practice and the use of mother's milk as a medical intervention in the NICU.

Established speakers such as Profs. Berthold Koletzko, Sertac Arslanoglu, Lars Bode and Donna Geddes will offer their views on the future of breastfeeding research and its application in clinical practice. Beyond that, leading NICU specialists Profs. Diane Spatz, Christoph Fusch and Paula Meier will address the importance of own mother’s milk use in the NICU and issue a call to action, focusing in particular on the successful initiation of milk production for this vulnerable population – please find the programme here.
