From 2006-2020, the CDC Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity and the USBC co-hosted this series to bring together breastfeeding coalitions to share best practices and news and to network and collaborate on issues of national significance.

Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere Inc. (ROSE) is among the valuable partners associated with the Communities and Hospital Advancing Maternity Practices (CHAMPS) initiative. This initiative focuses on improving maternal and child health outcomes through promoting Baby-Friendly practices among hospitals in New Orleans, Mississippi, Southern Texas, and Southern Tennessee. ROSE involvement addresses community engagement and empowerment through its Community Transformer breastfeeding peer support program. The Community In CHAMPS session will highlight the achievements accomplished in these area, and additional activities to come!
