Idaho Breastfeeding Summit

The birth of the Idaho Breastfeeding Summit was consummated when the Central District Health (CDH) and the IBC applied  for funds to promote and support breastfeeding through the State of Idaho Women, Infant and Children (WIC) Program.  This funding allowed the coalition to bring in nationally renowned speakers and provide continuing education credits at the  first annual Idaho Breastfeeding Summit in 2017. The three-day conference had 158 attendees including nurses, IBCLC's,  nurse practitioners, physical therapists, physicians, doulas, midwives, registered dietitians, and WIC peer counselors. This  summit provided a venue for bringing stakeholders together to learn, connect and collaborate. It has been growing strong  every year to become the most exceptional activity for breastfeeding advocates in the State of Idaho.
