DPG/MIG Showcase

Thanks to all of our current members who stopped by to say "Hi" and those who came by looking for opportunities to get more involved. One way that PHCNPG members can get involved is by volunteering on
committees. PHCNPG garnered interest from many potential members.

The Mothers' Room
The Mothers' Room at FNCE® provides breastfeeding mothers a private, comfortable place to breastfeed their infant or pump and store their milk while at the conference center. Bonnie Bradly led the efforts for this year's room which was staffed by numerous volunteers from PHCNPG, Womens Health DPG, registered dietitians, students through the Student Host Program.
