Dr. Kate Lafferty

Practice: Broadway Family Health Clinic, Corner Brook, NL

As part of a supportive community across the province, Dr. Lafferty has made an impact on her patients, which is clearly seen in her nomination:

“I have so much appreciation and gratitude for all of the assistance and support Dr. Lafferty provided to our family during our breastfeeding journey. Learning to breastfeed was an extremely difficult challenge for our first four months and unfortunately we live in a region without access to a Lactation Consultant. Dr. Lafferty provided compassion and encouragement as she provided ongoing teaching during numerous appointments as we learned to breastfeed. She also recommended useful breastfeeding websites and books for additional resources to assist us in between our appointments. Dr. Lafferty’s support, knowledge, and expertise enabled us to succeed with our breastfeeding journey and we are so thankful to have a happy, healthy toddler who was breastfeed for 16 months…”
