Baby Friendly Initiative Conference & EXPO 2010

The Ontario Breastfeeding Committee is hosting a BFI EXPO 2010 on November
18th at the Halton Regional Administration Building, Oakville. The
conference goals are to :

* highlight the optimal biological and social environments that
mothers and babies share
* provide guidance on the BFI accreditation process
* provide opportunities to network and share resources supportive of
the Baby-friendly Initiative.

We are pleased to have Dr. Jean Clinton, Marianne Brophy and Frank Agguire
to help us meet out goals. As well, community and hospital BFI panel members
will address questions and provide guidance on how they achieved their BFI
designation. If you would like,please indicate specific questions for
discussion on your registration form.

Plan to register for a display table to highlight your organizations
accomplishments. As well, on November 17th, you are invited for a networking
supper at a local restaurant.

For more information on the day and to register, a conference brochure can
be found on the newly revised Ontario Breastfeeding Committee Website at
