NYSBC is a coalition of coalitions, bringing together representatives from the local and statewide breastfeeding networks and coalitions, organizations and other stakeholder organizations to serve as a voluntary Board of Directors in a united voice to see that breastfeeding is supported in all environments to promote optimal health and development in New York State.
The Board of Directors of NYSBC represent our state on the United States Breastfeeding Committee, and serves as your organization's voice for breastfeeding advocacy in New York State.
Some of our past activities have included training more than 350 people across New York State in the Business Case for Breastfeeding Toolkit, providing mini-grants to local breastfeeding networks to assist them with workplace lactation programs, and last year we have awarded mini-grants to several local breastfeeding coalitions in New York State to help them with their 2015 World Breastfeeding Week celebration activities. Coalition supporters are eligible to apply for our 2016 mini-grants.
Our secone annual educational conference, held in April 2016, was a huge success, bringing over 150 breastfeeding advocates and supporters together to hear the latest from our NYS Breastfeeding Experts. We are in the planning stages for our 2017 conference, to be held in Troy, on March 21. Our keynote speaker will the world renowned Cathy Genna!
