It’s nearly impossible to pick one highlight. I’m always fascinated and entertained by Dr. Jones’s presentations. I learned so much about swaddling from Linda Smith. I have a lot to process and reflect on after listening to presentations about race and maternal child health from Black breastfeeding advocates and lactation professionals. I appreciated Sylvia’s props in her autoimmunity presentation. Dr. Gupta shared such vital information. The list goes on and on. Most of all, George and I felt all of your love! – Yours truly, Jess, Hartland, WI
