The USBC's National Breastfeeding Conference & Convening brings together breastfeeding-focused representatives from across the country: coalition leaders from every U.S. state and territory; representatives from relevant government departments; national non-profits, non-governmental organizations including consumer (parents) groups; and health professional associations. This singular gathering assists with development of the leadership capacity to more effectively protect, promote, and support breastfeeding at the national, state, and local/community levels.

The Ninth National Breastfeeding Conference & Convening will be held in Bethesda, Maryland on Friday, June 14 - Saturday, June 15, 2019.
