News & Info

The USBC e-Newsletter, Staying Abreast, is published in a weekly news brief format, called the Weekly Wednesday Wire (WWW). Past issues are archived below.

Please note: Inclusion of an item in this e-newsletter does NOT imply endorsement or support of such item by the United States Breastfeeding Committee, unless specifically noted.

The WWW goes on hiatus four times a year: the weeks of the Independence Day and Christmas & New Year's holidays, and the Wednesday before the USBC membership meetings held in late January and early August. Also, in weeks when Monday is a federal holiday, or when there is a USBC-hosted "live" event on Monday, the issue will be published on Thursday.
