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.

The First 1,000 Days: Nourishing Healthier Futures
Lucy Sullivan, Executive Director, 1,000 Days
Join 1,000 Days on June 12 from 2 – 3 p.m. EST for a webinar to learn more about our work to promote, protect, and strengthen breastfeeding policies, programs and practices in the U.S. and throughout the world. Learn about their upcoming Global Breastfeeding Webinar series 2018, a free training being offered to advocates around the world on how to utilize social media to promote, protect and support breastfeeding in the lead up to World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month (U.S.) in August. A Washington, DC-based advocacy organization, 1,000 Days leads the fight to make the nutrition of women and children during the critical one-thousand-day window between pregnancy and a child’s second birthday a funding and policy priority. Guided by the science showing the foundational importance of the good nutrition early in life and the conviction that all children deserve a chance to reach their full potential, 1,000 Days mobilizes parents, thought-leaders, policymakers and its network of partners to ensure that mothers and children everywhere have a healthy first 1,000 days. 1,000 Days advocates on a range of issues in the U.S. including paid family leave, the Women Infant and Children’s (WIC) program, and protecting access to comprehensive, affordable healthcare to ensure that all of America’s children get a thriving start.
