August 21: Webcast - Advancing Infant Health: Addressing Disparities and Identifying Legal Strategies to Promote Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is proven to have significant health benefits for infants, providing nutrients and antibodies that promote health and fight illness. Lower health care costs, reduced trash and plastic in the environment, and greater productivity for working mothers are some of the public health benefits associated with breastfeeding.
But for many mothers, social, political and economic challenges impede opportunities to breastfeed. This webinar will examine racial inequalities and their impact on breastfeeding support, and highlight legal and policy strategies to strengthen systems to support breastfeeding initiation and success.
