Melissa Bartick, MD, MSc, FABM presented Breastfeeding Disparities and Social Marketing at the Oklahoma Breastfeeding Summit this year. Her research continues to prove what many studies have already found. WE HAVE A PROBLEM! RACE IS STILL A MAJOR ISSUE in our wonderful country. How many research studies do we need? Everyone keeps researching and talking about the problem. We have to admit that the problem exists and move forward with solutions. I love that her presentation explored solutions!
