The CDC Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity and the United States Breastfeeding Committee co-host a series of Bi-Monthly State Breastfeeding Coalitions Webinars. The webinars are held every two months (in even numbered months) on the second Tuesday of the month from 2-3 p.m. ET. They bring together state/territorial/tribal breastfeeding coalitions to share best practices and news and to network and collaborate on issues of national significance.
National Webinars: Access to the national webinars is open to all interested breastfeeding coalition members. Webinar announcement emails are sent through USBC’s Coalitions Announcement List.
Regional Calls: Each state/territory has 5 lines to use to dial into the regional calls (tribal region has 20 lines total). Coalition Designated Contributors manage the use of the 5 call lines within their coalition. Please contact your coalition to learn how participation is arranged in your coalition.
The topics and presentation materials from all past sessions are archived below.
