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.

Mom2Mom Global and Breastfeeding in Combat Boots: Breastfeeding Support for Active Military Personnel and Families
Amy Barron Smolinski, MA, ALC, CLC
Felisha Brooks-Floyd, BS, CLC, IBCLC
Mom2Mom Global is a worldwide network of breastfeeding support and advocacy for military families, with the mission to provide consistent, high-quality peer support through local chapters and liaisons at U.S. military installations, increase access to accredited lactation professionals for all military families, and to provide a channel to raise awareness and solutions for the concerns of military breastfeeding families.Breastfeeding in Combat Boots advocates, educates, and supports all personnel serving in the military (active, reserve or guard) and other non-traditional jobs (police, firefighting, construction) who wish to breastfeed while serving their country.
Reflecting the diversity of the U.S. Department of Defense, Mom2Mom Global is committed to inclusion, diversity, and equity as core values. During this session, participants will hear about the many ways Mom2Mom Global and Breastfeeding in Combat Boots provide breastfeeding support, education, and advocacy for the unique needs of military families. We will learn about the action steps being taken to apply an equity lens in leadership development, membership recruitment, actions, policies, and programs.
