She also facilitated the 2014 Lactation Summit: Addressing Inequities Within the Lactation Consultant Profession. Ms. Payne speaks frequently around the country to professional audiences on topics related to lactation and birth disparities. One of the many barriers that aspiring International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) of color face is acquiring clinical hours.
