About the Event

Join other Louisiana birthing facilities for an opportunity to share experiences and collaborate on implementing the Ten Steps and other tools provided by The Gift. Please come prepared to informally share a recent QI project – Quick Win, PDSA or Mountain Climber project.  

To facilitate coordination among quality improvement efforts in the New Orleans area, The Gift & the Express Yourself are providing this as a joint event. Express Yourself is a quality improvement collaborative that includes specific NICUs in the greater New Orleans area to address disparities in the provision of maternal milk to very low birth weight babies. 

Keynote Speaker: Kimberly Seals Allers (12:30pm - 1:30pm) is the editorial director of the Maternal and Child Health Communication Collective, a national consortium working to shift the narrative of maternal and child health issues. Kimberly is an award-winning journalist, author, strategist and advocate for maternal and infant health.  

You are welcome to attend the full day or you may elect to attend only the morning or afternoon session. Lunch will be provided.

Note: To receive credit related to your hospital's Gift designation, you must attend the morning session.

An application for CMEs, nursing continuing education and CERPs is pending.
