Are you interested in learning more about tongue-tie and its potential impacts on infant feeding?

We invite you to join the discussion during this 2.5 hour public engagement forum.

This event is open to healthcare professionals, policy makers, researchers, students, and citizens. Families who have been affected by tongue-tie are highly encouraged to attend, as their experiences and concerns may help to inform future knowledge translation initiatives.

Funding for this event has been provided by the CIHR Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes and Memorial University's Office of Public Engagement.

Children are welcome

Snacks and refreshments will be provided

Space is limited. Please RSVP by September 21, 2016.
