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 Info

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.

Register for the webinar series

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.
