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.

Empowering Local Leadership and Coordinating Breastfeeding Messages by Catalyzing 'Quick Wins'
Shannon McKenney Shubert, Project Director, Michigan Breastfeeding Network
Michigan mothers and breastfeeding service providers have declared loudly and clearly that “inconsistent information” is a barrier to achieving optimal breastfeeding outcomes. The Michigan Breastfeeding Network is on a quest to meet this challenge, head on. We are empowering and expanding our local coalition network through the 5 conditions of Collective Impact – putting specific emphasis on empowering local leadership with “quick wins.” Our focus is on providing coordinated and easy-to-implement tools, fostering a culture of idea sharing, and helping local leaders to stop reinventing the wheel. Join us as we share about our successes, lessons learned, and opportunities for the future.
