National Breastfeeding Conference & Convening

The USBC 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.
