For the past several months, our coalition has been working on a report that would share the San Bernardino County breastfeeding rates in hospitals and a clear understanding of the Senate Bill 402. With the collaboration and information from the California WIC Association and the UC Davis Human Lactation Center and IEBFC intern, Nicholette Lambert the report is ready for public distribution! 
Please download, forward, and share! 

We will continue the hard work partnership with our Coalition members to educate, advocate for, and market to communities with breastfeeding disparities.
