Learning Communities

About This Resource

Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin released The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding (SGCTA) on January 20, 2011, calling on all sectors of society to "help make breastfeeding easier." This website houses online learning communities on breastfeeding-related topic areas from the SGCTA and beyond. Site users are invited to explore all the Learning Communities, and join those of greatest interest, to share information and resources and surface opportunities for collaborative action.
