For several years i've been writing about breastmilk research I help with at the University of Massachusetts.
I help Dr. Kathleen Arcaro find participants for her studies. Most recently we've been looking for African American moms to donate milk samples, and encouraging African American moms to sign up for the Love/Avon Army of Women (please select "breast milk study" when asked how you heard about it!).
We've recently redone the UMass Breastmlk Lab's Facebook page and will be posting some great information about breastmilk and breast cancer research there.
I recently posted this mock-up of some onesies we're hoping to get made as "thank you" gifts for study participants, inspired by a shirt I got for my daughter when I donated to the Mothers' Milk Bank of San Jose. Cute, huh? The Milk Bank recently started a Facebook page, as did Ban the Bags.
So we hope you'll friend the page and stay in touch! It'll help us spread the word about this research and find moms interesting in participating.
