Abstract

An epidemiologic workshop was convened at this conference and consisted of epidemiologists, basic scientists, and clinical investigators who had previously studied certain facets of human lactation and the composition and effects of human milk. It was evident that the participants from these several disciplines learned a great deal from each other, and at the end there was a consensus that additional meetings of this type would be highly desirable to plan for future investigations in the field. We hope that these future meetings will result not only in further formulations of epidemiologic research concerning these matters but also in the presentation of the fruits of such collaboration.
