NCBC Receives Grant Funding

Beginning in April 2019 the Community and Clinical Connections for Prevention and Health Branch, NC Division of Public Health, will fund seven organizations, including NCBC, to implement CDC’s State Physical Activity and Nutrition Program strategies across the state.

North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition (NCBC)
Strategy: Interventions Supportive of Breastfeeding Award Amount: $56,520
Place: Primary care clinics serving New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick Counties

NCBC aims to increase breastfeeding rates among populations at highest risk for health inequities. NCBC’s project will coach primary care providers through a process to 1) increase accessibility of breastfeeding support by medical providers and peer counselors, 2) improve their breastfeeding protocols, practices and interventions and 3) attain the Mother-Baby Friendly clinic award for outpatient clinics. They will begin their work in two primary care clinics serving low-income families and families of color in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick Counties.
