Dinner with a Doc: Breastfeeding…The Public Health Wonder Drug

Topic:  Breastfeeding…The Public Health Wonder Drug In the last two decades, breastfeeding has left the arena of lifestyle and has entered the public health discussion. Dr. Schreck, an expert in breastfeeding medicine and baby friendly policies, will discuss how a mothers’ feeding decision is perhaps the most important health decision that she will make. Presenter:  Paula K. Schreck MD, IBCLC, FABM attended the University of Michigan Medical School.  She completed her Pediatric Residency at the University of California, San Diego.  She is the creator and medical director of the St. John Mother Nurture Project, a WK Kellogg Foundation-supported innovative and far-reaching breastfeeding initiative that spans her urban hospital and the surrounding community.  She is also medical director and co-creator of the Mother Nurture Lactation College, a unique lactation consultant training program for minority women.  In 2012, she was named Breastfeeding Coordinator for the six-hospital St. John Providence Health System.
