Dear IEBfC Members and Friends,
In light of COVID-19 and social distancing recommendations for California and the US and the closure of many public venues and the need to focus on our families our Inland Empire Breastfeeding Coalition Board has made the following decisions regarding our EDUCATION SESSIONS.
We will continue with our weekly check in webinars and starting August 2020 we will host our General Education Meetings via Zoom.
The 4th Tuesday of each month will be the General Education Meeting and we will offer CERP/CEU/BRN.
Thank you for your understanding and we are working hard to ensure our future educational sessions will continue.We hope you are able to take this time to focus on your family and your health.
~ From the Board of the IEBfC
There are always flowers for those who want to see them.
Meetings are open to all health care professionals and community members
IEBFC supports the mother-baby dyad: babies and their siblings are welcome. Please bring quiet toys to share.
Our General Education Meetings are FREE.
We offer 2 CERPs and CEUs at each General Meeting.
We offer FREE CERPs and CEUs for Members.
We offer CERPs and CEUs for an additional cost at the door.
General Education Meetings rotate meeting locations between our two Inland Empire counties (San Bernardino and Riverside) to reach the most health care professionals.
