Leadership, Management and Workforce Development
Sharing Session - 60 Minutes
Breastfeeding is one of the most cost-effective public health interventions to improve population’s health. Through the breastfeeding socio-ecological model, one can identify many layers where breastfeeding promotion, protection, and support take place. Coordinating these multi-level efforts is challenging, but necessary to enable breastfeeding to be an easy, default choice for families, especially in historically marginalized communities.
The goal of this session is to assist communities and states to identify their roles in breastfeeding promotion, protection, and support. Members of the Breastfeeding Public Health Partners will showcase a newly developed partnership resource, a toolkit to strength the public health infrastructure by highlighting connections between Public Health Partners, and state, territorial, local and tribal breastfeeding coalitions.
