Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition


Join us to learn how Wesley Medical Center, a large maternity care hospital in Wichita Kansas, formed a diverse and energetic local community team who, with the assistance of the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition has made a significant impact on the continuity of breastfeeding care being provided in their community. Hear first-hand from the project coordinator and a team member how they went about assessing and improving support for breastfeeding in their community. We will then take a bird’s eye view of state coalition projects that support continuity of breastfeeding care across Kansas. This presentation is for every state breastfeeding coalition looking for inspiration and or just a few good ideas. This webinar will address:

• How to create a diverse local community team to assess local continuity of care

• How a local community team can improve a community’s breastfeeding support

• Examples of state coalition projects that strengthen community efforts to support breastfeeding
