We love highlighting the activities of our amazing USLCA chapters! This month, we’re excited to share information from the Oklahoma Lactation Consultant Association (OKLCA).
OKLCA’s mission is:
- To protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
- To serve as a continuing education resource to further the professional growth of the Oklahoma Lactation Consultants..
- To enhance the reputation, image and credibility of Lactation Consultants, ILCA and USLCA.
- To support the implementation of the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes and any subsequent WHO resolutions consistent with the goals of OKLCA.
This year, OKLCA has been able to adjust to our new virtual world and successfully network by using the GroupMe app. They have also been able to make connections and recruit new members by working with the Coalition of Oklahoma Breastfeeding Advocates (COBA). OKLCA is also working towards obtaining 501c3 status.
