Healthcare Professionals Classes


Lactation Care Center RGV is a resource for training individuals who want to gain more knowledge and experience in the field of lactation. Being this resource for our community allows medical, nursing and dietetic students to learn about the physiology of making breast milk, the effect of health conditions on the production of milk and infant conditions that can affect the production or transfer of breast milk.

We encourage healthcare providers to attend the breastfeeding trainings that are being held in our community. Here you will find upcoming trainings for healthcare professionals.
