Power Tools Webinar Announcement: The Role of Law and Policy in Assisting Families to Reach Healthy People’s Maternal, Infant, and Child Health Breastfeeding Goals in the United States

Join the USBC for a Power Tools webinar titled "The Role of Law and Policy in Assisting Families to Reach Healthy People’s Maternal, Infant, and Child Health Breastfeeding Goals in the United States" on Wednesday, May 20, from 2-3:30 p.m. ET. This panel discussion will share information from a new report recently released as part of the Healthy People Law and Health Policy Project—a collaboration between the federal HHS Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CDC Foundation, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation—that examines how communities can use law and policy interventions at the healthcare, workplace, school, and community-levels to achieve Healthy People's objectives related to breastfeeding. This session will highlight key findings from the report, including summarizing existing laws and policies that impact breastfeeding families, and sharing specific initiatives from the national to community level that demonstrate emerging trends in breastfeeding support and policy. Cheryl Lebedevitch, Senior Workplace Program Manager and Policy Analyst at the USBC, served as one of three co-authors on the report. Register for the webinar series.
