USLCA Award of Excellence

Congratulations to the 2018 winner!


The 2018 Award of Excellence goes to Lisa Marasco, MA, IBCLC, FILCA

Lisa is a tireless researcher, uncovering information to help women to breastfeed. She has written and contributed to books, articles and other publications. I believe she was the first person to describe the connections between hormonal dysfunction and lactation failure–and to discover what can be done for treatment. Her superb intellect and unwavering curiosity have led her in continuing to question and find answers. She is a sought-after conference presenter around the world. She accomplishes all of this while serving families through her local WIC program. She has volunteered hundreds of hours of telephone support and leading support meetings for families. She is most deserving of this award!
