Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, the 2021 La Leche League of Connecticut Health Care Provider Seminar, featuring Alison Stuebe, MD has decided to go VIRTUAL!
Dr. Stuebe will present live from North Carolina so you will be able to receive 6 credits of continuing education (CME, RN, CERP, RD, LLL) and ask questions in real time!
Look for updates as more information becomes available.
Although the 2021 Health Care Provider seminar will be held online, our ultimate plan is to return to in-person events, starting in March 2022 at beautiful St. Clement's Castle!
For all those health care providers who are also working in harm’s way, as well as anyone adversely affected by this outbreak, we send you our best wishes for safety and comfort during this trying time.
