2018 California Breastfeeding Summit 

Join us at the 2018 California Breastfeeding Summit, the premier convening of the year which brings together diverse breastfeeding advocates and organizations all in one place!

Together we will examine the status of breastfeeding in California, learn about evidence-based practices, new resources, establish new connections and network with colleagues from throughout the state. Past attendees say that the summit left them feeling inspired and motivated to take action to remove barriers and increase breastfeeding rates in their communities!

In this quickly evolving public health climate, the California Breastfeeding Summit allows you to stay informed about State and National policies that impact breastfeeding including:
  *The legalization of marijuana
  *Current breastfeeding and birth data
  *Baby-Friendly and Model Hospital Policy implementation updates
  *Creative strategies to support breastfeeding
  *Media controversies and digital campaigns in breastfeeding and so much more!

Join us in San Diego and become an active participant of the breastfeeding movement in California!
