We are honored to have won $2500 in the 2016 BigIdeas Berkeley Competition in the Global Health Category.
We got to participate in a round table discussion with Dr. Ticora Jones, Division Chief, Higher Education Solutions Network, Global Development Lab at USAID. She asked us an important question, “How will you teach empathy to your health providers?”
Breastfeeding medicine/management/training–whatever you want to call it–has to come with a dose of empathy education. It’s an incredibly hard skill to teach, even though it’s something that many of us practice (or try to!) on a daily basis.
Would love your suggestions below on how to incorporate empathy into breastfeeding training of health providers!!
