JHL Cover Photo Contest
JHL’s cover changed in 2013 - and is about to change again! The basic design will stay the same, but we plan to replace the 4 cover photos with new ones, for the February-November 2014 issues. JHL is your journal, and we want to feature your photos! The 4 photos portray the broad field of human lactation, from the IBCLC helping new mothers (picture: the caring professional with a breastfeeding mom; teaching a class, etc) along with the harder science of lactation (picture: test tubes of milk; microscope slides, etc).
