Outgoing Presidents Message | April 7, 2020 

Dear Colleagues,

First of all, I hope that you are all well and safe in these challenging times.  I have noted below how ISRHML has rapidly mobilized to curate emerging data related to SARS-CoV-2 in human milk.  It has been an honor to have served as President-elect and President of ISRHML over the past four years.  I have been a member of ISRHML for 35 years and the opportunity to contribute to the leadership of the society has been a highlight of my professional career.  As I transition to past President, I would like to take this opportunity to reflect upon changes to the society, acknowledge those who have made it happen, and to highlight what I view as future opportunities for ISRHML....Click here for the full letter

Evidence-based statements on breastfeeding and COVID-19

The mission of ISRHML is to create and disseminate research on human milk and lactation. During this unprecedented time, ISRHML leaders have come together to assemble the rapidly emerging evidence on human milk, lactation and COVID-19. We are sharing this information with our members to help to coordinate collaborative research efforts and educate researchers, practitioners and families. A summary of current evidence can be found here, where we will continue to post updates as the evidence evolves.

COVID-19 and the ISRHML 2020 Conference

The organizing team of the ISRHML 2020 meeting in Stockholm continues to closely monitor the developments in the spread and prevention of the corona virus (COVID-19) and we would like to assure all our colleagues that their well-being and safety is of paramount importance to us. There are currently a number of international travel restrictions as well as restrictions on large public gatherings in Sweden. However, these measures are believed to be temporary and there is currently no indication that the ISRHML 2020 meeting will be cancelled or postponed. However, we will continue to carefully monitor the situation and will provide regular updates on the situation here.

We also want to remind you about the extended submission period for abstract to the conference. You can now submit your abstract until April 30th.
