NIPPs: Nurturing Information for Professional Practice

NIPPs: Nurturing Information for Professional Practice

NIPPs is a committee open to any member of the Massachusetts Breastfeeding Coalition.

We are a small group of passionate people who are focused on increasing access to relevant and updated information to enhance the practice of both aspiring and seasoned lactation professionals.

NIPPs meets on the third Thursday of most months at 6:00 pm; sign up to attend via our Events Calendar or this Zoom link. We’d love more like-minded Coalition members to join our efforts so that we can learn and grow together!
