August 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
8-Part Webinar

NACCHO and the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee, with funding by the Centers for Disease Control Division of Nutrition Physical Activity and Obesity (DNPAO), reconvened the USBC’s Continuity of Care Constellation in the Fall of 2018. Over 100 participants across the United States collectively contributed thoughts, resources, and experiences to the Blueprint* over the past two years.

Developed with a public health lens, the Blueprint aims to increase local capacity to implement community-driven approaches to support chest/breastfeeding. Its recommendations are centered on the needs of populations disproportionately impacted by structural barriers that lead to low rates of breastfeeding. Its goal is to ensure that chest/breastfeeding support services are continuous, accessible, and coordinated, and that community spaces are consistently supportive of chest/breastfeeding families. The Blueprint is intended for any local-level organization and individual that interacts with pregnant and postpartum families.

Additionally, The launch will announce the upcoming Identifying Care Gaps: Conducting Community Assessments to Improve the Chest/Breastfeeding Landscape in Historically Oppressed Communities request for applications (RFA) date.

The Blueprint launch event will kick-off an 8-part webinar series on chest/breastfeeding Continuity of Care, entitled #EveryStepoftheWay through the 1,000days. Continuing education credits (CMEs, CNEs, CECHs, CPHs, CEUs, CPEUs, CERPs) are pending approval.
