    Published in association with the Lactation Education Accreditation and Approval Review Committee (LEAARC), it reflects the current state of practice and serves as a fundamental resource for beginning clinicians, orienting staff, and planning continuing education programs. Organized in three sections, Core Curriculum for Interdisciplinary Lactation Care focuses on the science, management, and professional aspects of lactation care.

    “As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), physician, and educator with more than 25 years of experience with training others in lactation, I am very enthusiastic about the publication of this text. The impact it will have on the different environments in the clinical practice of human lactation will be enormous. Whether as a text for academic and professional-level human lactation courses or as a reference in the clinic, it provides evidence-based information that will undoubtedly help us expand our knowledge and assist our clients or patients in making informed decisions.”  - From the Foreword by Ana M. Parrilla-Rodríguez, MD, MPH, FABM, IBCLC, FACCE, Professor, Maternal and Child Health Program, School of Public Health, University of Puerto Rico Director, Certificado Profesional en Educador en Lactancia, Academia Edupró
