In May 2016, Advantage Health Centers was selected to present a poster for the Sixth National Breastfeeding Coalitions Conference. This year’s theme, A New Day: Community Engagement for Equity in the First Food Movement, featured presentations from leaders in the public health, regional and cultural breastfeeding coalitions.

Lead Breastfeeding Peer Counselor, Erica Davis, attended the confer-ence in August 2016 and presented

a poster detailing the Mother Nurture Program and its impact on breastfeeding rates in our community.

The poster, pictured to the right, is titled: Peer led breastfeeding support in a FQHC setting, earned first place out of over 20 submis-sions!

Congratulations to Erica and the AHC Mother Nurture program!
