Linda Lisk, MSN, is a former assistant clinical professor of midwifery at YSN. She was actively involved in La Leche League International in Syracuse, New York, where she became an assistant head nurse. Upon graduation from YSN, Linda spent the next 23 years teaching midwifery students at a private OB/GYN practice. During her active career, Linda became dedicated to breastfeeding and was an integral part of changing breastfeeding policies at Yale-New Haven Hospital to encourage women to breastfeed on demand without time limitations. Fulfilling her lifelong dream, Linda partnered with her fellow CNM colleague Deborah Cibelli ’81 to open Women’s Health Associates, LLC, which has been recognized several times as the Best Midwifery Group in New Haven County by the New Haven Advocate.
