Opening Keynote Presentation

GOLD Perinatal is pleased to offer a free Keynote Presentation open to the general public. Our Keynote Presentation always discusses historical, biological, or sociological topics in the perinatal timeframe, and is meant to appeal to a wide range of health care professionals.

Our Keynote Presenation is a great way to kick off our annual conference; it's often the tipping point for individuals, helping them make the final decision to enjoy the other presentations we have in store. Only registered delegates will be able to claim continuing education hours and can do so by logging into the Delegates Area prior to watching the presentation.

Jarold “Tom” Johnston Jr., CNM, IBCLC
Biography:

Tom Johnston is unique as a midwife and lactation consultant and the father of eight breastfed children. Recently retired after 27 years in the US Army, he is now an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Methodist University where he teaches, among other things, Maternal-Child Nursing and Nutrition. You may have heard him at a number of conferences at the national level, to include the Association of Woman’s Health and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), the International Lactation Consultant’s Association (ILCA), or perhaps at dozens of other conferences across the country. In his written work he routinely addresses fatherhood and the role of the father in the breastfeeding relationship and has authored a chapter on the role of the father in breastfeeding for “Breastfeeding in Combat Boots: A survival guide to breastfeeding in the military”.

Abstract: The Perinatal Microbiome

There is much to learn about the perinatal microbiome, What is it? What can it do? What do we do about it? How do our practices in the birth arena affect the long term health of women and their children? This presentation will scratch the surface of this exciting new area of research.
