History of Colorado Lactation Journal Club

First established in 1987 with fewer than a dozen participants, Colorado Lactation Journal Club has grown to impact more than 230 key health professionals annually—within a 100 mile radius—who are dedicated to promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding.

dr. neifertMarianne Neifert, MD, MTS, FAAP (also known as Dr. Mom) founded Colorado Lactation Journal Club more than 28 years ago as an educational offering of The Lactation Program (1985-2009), one of the very first comprehensive breastfeeding centers in the US.

Although The Lactation Program has closed, Journal Club lives on! It is now a program of Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation and is hosted by Mothers’ Milk Bank at the Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center. Dr. Marianne Neifert continues in her role as Journal Club’s regular facilitator/moderator.

Do you produce milk in excess of your own baby’s needs? If so, consider donating to Mothers’ Milk Bank. Your extra milk could help babies in NICUs all over the country. Just one ounce of milk can feed a micro preemie for an entire day.
