CDC-USBC Bi-Monthly Coalitions Webinars
The CDC Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity and the United States Breastfeeding Committee co-host this series of Bi-Monthly State Breastfeeding Coalitions Webinars, 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.
Access to these webinars is open to all interested breastfeeding coalition members. Topic/speaker details are posted 1-2 weeks before each session on this page and in the Coalitions Learning Connection. The recordings and presentation materials from all past sessions are archived below.
NOTE: To streamline access, these webinars are set up in GotoWebinar as a series. You only need to register for the series once, and you will then receive auto-reminders of each session with the topic/speaker details. Even though you may not be able to attend every webinar session live, the series registration will still send you auto-reminders so that you have easy updates on the topic and links to the live webinar and archives.

Creating Non-Traditional Partners to Support Breastfeeding Families
BriAnna Wanner, Executive Director, North Dakota Breastfeeding Coalition
In 2017 the North Dakota Breastfeeding Coalition (NDBC) looked outside the box, exploring non-traditional breastfeeding partners to help increase community support for breastfeeding families. The key to the project was identifying and solidifying partnerships with stakeholders outside the usual realm. Six communities, five airports, four zoos and one major event center all partnered to create breastfeeding spaces for mothers on the go. This webinar will discuss how the project came to fruition as the NDBC and the ND Department of Health worked closely together to align goals and produce outcomes.
