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.
This webinar is free for all attendees. Attendees may qualify for CLE credits.
The Public Health Law Webinar Series is presented in partnership by the Network, Public Health Law Research and the American Society of Law Medicine and Ethics (ASLME)
