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 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.
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.

Idaho Breastfeeding Coalition Facilitates Hospital and WIC Community Partnership
Cindy Galloway, RDN, LD, IBCLC, Public Health Dietitian and Breastfeeding Coordinator
Cindi Bennett, MN, RN, IBCLC, St. Luke's Health System
Please join the USBC on this webinar, to explore how this small group project grew with the help of the Idaho Breastfeeding Coalition to include a diverse rural and urban geographic area of the state of Idaho and facilitated a partnership of a health system of 8 hospitals and community WIC peer counseling programs from 3 Health Districts to improve breastfeeding support transition from hospital to community.
Participants will also learn how a coalition can facilitate a process of providing a transition of skilled support for lactation between a hospital and community WIC breastfeeding peer counselors per Action Step 8 of the Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding which is to: Develop systems to guarantee continuity of skilled support for lactation between hospitals and health care settings in the community.
