Julie Taylor, MD, MSc, AUC's senior associate dean for clinical sciences, just started her two-year term as president of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) this month—and she's already adding her voice to the national conversation surrounding breastfeeding.

In a letter to the editor published in the Oct. 22 edition of the New York Times, Dr. Taylor responds to an Oct. 16 piece in the Times titled "Overselling Breast-Feeding". In her letter, Dr. Taylor writes about a perceived "battleground" between those who strongly support breastfeeding and those who either choose or need to formula-feed their infants—and how this battleground could negatively impact new parents' abilities to make informed decisions about their children.

Take a look at Dr. Taylor's response here.

The ABM is a multi-specialty physician organization, with more than 500 members from more than 50 countries, dedicated to the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding and human lactation. Learn more at www.bfmed.org.
