What Our Students Are Saying
May I say I am more than impressed with your on line course, great presentations and incredible support. I will highly recommend you to my colleagues.
I just wanted to post to say thank you for the incredibly helpful websites. The women I teach will benefit greatly from the information.
Thanks and hello, Vergie. I hope that you and yours are well and thriving. I always get a flash of pleasure when I think of the classes that I took with you. I hope that you understand the impact that you make on your students, and how much your humanity shines into and inspires your teaching.
I really appreciate all the wonderful resources you provide via links to websites. There is so much information out there, and it helps so much to have some of it vetted by LER. I work in Public Health, so resources in other languages is really valuable. Thanks!
I've just successfully completed the final exam! What a fabulous class! Thanks so much for offering such a convenient and high quality option for obtaining lactation education!
