ISPAN Breastfeeding Initiative

Cook County Breastfeeding Learning Collaborative- a large component of the research group is to increase community support and continuity of care for breastfeeding in low-income and communities of color in Cook County. For the breastfeeding project, our strategy is to create learning collaboratives in Chicago/Suburban Cook County that engage communities, raise awareness and support, and foster community capacity to build a culture of health around breastfeeding.
