CGBI: Breastfeeding University at Carolina Global Breastfeeding Institute
The Breastfeeding University, home to Carolina Global Breastfeeding Institute’s Online Classroom, offers evidence-based, up-to-date education in an interactive and user-friendly format. Developed by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, lactation consultants, public health professionals, educators and La Leche League leaders, these trainings will help learners to establish a working knowledge of the importance of breastfeeding and how to support mothers and families to meet their breastfeeding goals.
Learners may work in a variety of classrooms. To date, there are three classrooms: Healthcare Settings, Childcare Settings: Early Care and Education Providers, and Childcare Settings: Trainers of Early Care and Education Providers. Each module is designed to take 30-minutes. However, the modules include optional opportunities to learn even more, which may take additional time. Enrolling in each classroom provides access to all associated modules and continuing education certificates. Completion certificates may be printed free of charge to verify completion of a single module or cumulatively to show all completed modules.
