The 7th Perinatal Hospital Leadership Summit – 2020

Postponed Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic!

Originally scheduled for May 2020

Rescheduled for November 2020 – See details under March 28 Update below.

The Minnesota Breastfeeding Coalition summit planning team has come to consensus that we need to postpone the 7th Annual Perinatal Hospital Leadership Summit until the fall. Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the burden that is placed on hospitals and hospital staff, the MBC recognizes that energy must be directed toward reducing the spread of the coronavirus and responding to community needs at this time.

As soon as the MBC has the date for the fall event, which will be merged with the annual Conference and Workshop to make a 3 day event, we will let you know.  There will be registration options for 1 day, 2 days or the entire 3 days.  We intend to retain the theme and the speakers as planned for the May 2020 Postponed Summit.

March 28, 2020 Update:

Save the dates!

The dates for the 13th Annual Workshop and Conference AND for the 7th Perinatal Hospital Leadership Summit will be November 4-6, 2020  (exact date for leadership summit is to be determined.)
