The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) is pleased to announce that the call for proposals for the 2022 National Breastfeeding Conference & Convening (NBCC) is now open!
The NBCC brings together a diverse set of clinical, community, advocacy, and research professionals who recognize the public health importance of breastfeeding as critical for reducing the burden of infant morbidity and mortality, childhood and adolescent overweight, obesity, and chronic disease, and maternal type 2 diabetes and maternal breast and ovarian cancers. The convening is designed to develop and strengthen the leadership capacity of the public health workforce, including representatives from direct service organizations, breastfeeding coalitions, hospitals and healthcare facilities, health departments, research institutions, and federal agencies to effectively protect, promote, and support breastfeeding at the national, state, local, and community levels.
For the safety of our team, presenters, and attendees, this event will be hosted online from Tuesday, June 7, to Thursday, June 9, 2022.
In 2021, we bore witness to an insurrection at the Capital, struggled with defining a new normal in the face of a pandemic still ravaging communities, and experienced (or swallowed) the pain and bitterness associated with ongoing inequities perpetuated by systemic and structural racism. Despite it all, the First Food field remained steady in its commitment to meeting the basic needs of infants and families.
We recognize that infant feeding is a shared human priority beyond partisanship or social crisis. And together, first with votes from our broader stakeholder community, then with rankings by the representatives of our member organizations, we identified the top five policy priorities for the First Food field.
We are proud to share that in 2021, we did many great things together, including achieving forward movement on all five of these policy priorities. We thank you for your continued support. Here is a detailed account reflecting ongoing USBC activities to advance these policy priorities.
