Carolina BEBES: Birth and Breastfeeding: Evidence Based Education and Support

This spring, BEBES collaborated with UNC’s Student Wellness to hold Reproductive Health Trivia Night at Steel String Craft Brewery in Carrboro, NC. BEBES LOGOThe event raised funds for the organization’s scholarship fund for Mary Rose Tully Training Initiative students. BEBES was able to award $450 in scholarships to help cover exam fees for students who will be taking the IBLCE exam this July.

BEBES congratulates its members who graduated this spring, especially its Executive Board members: Jeniece Alvey, Holly Krohn, Jaimie Lea, Katie Mitchell and Jennifer Schroeder. We look forward to seeing what great things our graduates accomplish in the coming years, and we are excited to welcome new leadership to BEBES: Nicole Carbone and Paige Schildkamp will be taking on the positions of Co-Presidents, and Joanna Percher will be the new BEBES Treasurer.

The BEBES leadership is currently planning projects for the coming year. Please be in touch with ideas for how BEBES can collaborate with you on your organizations’ projects or initiatives.
